Birmingham City Council is committed to working in partnership with Independent Schools. It is in this spirit that we would like to invite you to the Independent Forum.
This two hour briefing will introduce you to key personnel at Birmingham City Council, give you a chance to meet with Independent School colleagues, discuss key statutory safeguarding guidance and support you with school improvement. The forum will help you meet the statutory requirements in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016. There will also be seminars covering the new guidance on Children Missing Education, Alternative Provision and Training Options available with Birmingham City Council. Attendance is encouraged from the DSL in school and a member of the senior leadership team who has strategic oversight of safeguarding within the organisation.
