The Department for Education (DfE) published non-statutory guidance on ensuring the safety of children in out of school settings in England in 2020.
An update to this guidance was published in September 2023 to reflect new legislation, including changes to what constitutes a position of trust, and changes to statutory guidance, including Keeping children safe in education.
The guidance is aimed at providers of tuition, community activities, or other clubs for children without parent or carer supervision.
