Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 3 sections
- 1 Part one: Safeguarding information for all staff
- 2 Annex A: Safeguarding information for school and college staff
- 3 Annex B: Further information
Part one of the KCSIE document (or Annex A…) is mandatory reading for all staff and gives a complete overview of safeguarding responsibilities for all staff. Staff will gain a better understanding of the importance of their role and how they can play a crucial role in preventing safeguarding issues.
Annex A is a condensed version of Part one. Annex A can be given to staff who do not directly work with children, if "the governing body or proprietor think it will provide a better basis for those staff to promote the welfare and safeguard children".
Annex B contains important additional information about different forms of abuse and safeguarding issues. Leaders in Schools/Colleges and staff who work directly with children should read this.
About this course
Our online KCSIE (Keeping Children Safe in Education) course allows for easy reporting, helping you keep tabs on who has and who hasn't read Part one of the guidance.
Best of all, we give it away for free to any educational institute that purchases any other Health & Safety or HR Compliance training course.
We decided to create this online version of the document when we were approached by a school that wanted an easier recording method for staff that had read the guidance. Signing a piece of paper wasn't enough for them to prove that their staff had read and understood the contents of the document.
After passing this onto the development team we were delighted to launch a module in which users were tested on their knowledge and the completed result was recorded within the suite. One comment from one school created our KCSIE course. Now 3 years on we are proud that we are able to help schools easily adhere to their mandatory requirements.

Too much text
I personally would have liked mini assessments throughout the course that give instant feedback and then the final assessment .Perhaps use a variety of media as I thought too much text it would have been nice to have this broken u a little - even a mini quiz part way through.
quite a good course

Courses are very detailed and informative.
It was clear and concise
Really good! Clear concise and easy to follow
The course was very informative.
I work in pre-school and there was very little information relating to pre school children and the course was directed towards older children. However, the information given was very interesting and informative. Thanks you.
Easy to read format
Too many words...
Back to back text made concentration difficult.The programme advised me that I could skip Annex A and then would not let me take the test until all the Annex A pages were checked as viewed.
Course easy to follow.

Why is this training important
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.
It's crucial that all staff read Part one (or Annex A, where Governing bodies deem appropriate) of the KSCIE document to better understand their safeguarding responsibilities.
This guidance applies to all schools and colleges and is for:
• headteachers, teachers and staff
• governing bodies, proprietors and management committees
It sets out the legal duties you must follow to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people under the age of 18 in schools and colleges.
All school and college staff should read part 1 of this guidance. Part 1 of the guidance is also available as a standalone document.
