Ofsted commissioned a survey to look at how schools in London are safeguarding pupils against the threat of knife crime and how pupils are being educated on the dangers of carrying a weapon. The survey was sent to around 700 schools, pupil referral units and FE colleges and closed in May. An update on the findings from the survey will be brought to a ESCB meeting later in the year.
Members of the Board signed off the updated Children Services Threshold Guidance. This document is a guide for anyone who has concerns about the wellbeing of the child and will support them in deciding who is the best person to support the family.
