Child Protection in Education 2016: the school year will have a great start

15th September, 2016. Save this date. Why? Because it’s when over 450 school leaders from all over the country will meet at our next Child Protection in Education conference.

That’s right: over 450 school leaders, from headteachers, principals, DSLs and middle leaders, will meet for this national conference at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel & Conference centre in London.

Why is this conference so popular? 

  1. Attendees can book a one-to-one legal consultation with our legal partners, education lawyer firm Browne Jacobson LLP.
  2. Get access to guidance and support on implementing the Prevent duty – everything you need to know in terms of legal obligations, what to show Ofsted in the next inspection and how to work with local authorities.
  3. Data privacy and information sharing – we all know how essential is for schools to master all the legalities surrounding data protection and confidentiality.
  4. Keeping Children Safe in Education – understand the latest obligations and the impact that this guidance is having on schools.
  5. Grasp the legal ramifications on radicalisation and extremism – when to make Channels referrals and when to involve external agencies.

So, what you are waiting for? Have a look at the stunning rooms where the Child Protection event will be held. But hurry, there are only a few places left before it's completely SOLD OUT.
