Keeping Children Safe in Education Part 1 Translations

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. That's why ALL school staff must read and understand Part 1 of the DfE's statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education.

As many schools employ speakers of English as an Additional Language who are not required to have a high level of English for their role, it can be challenging to ensure that everyone understands the full meaning and principles of the guidance.

That's why, as part of LGfL's commitment to helping schools keep children safe, we commissioned translations of KCSIE Part 1 into eleven key community languages. These are now available below as free, open-access documents for the benefit of all* schools.

Feel free to download and print but please do not upload or share online except by referring people to this page:

READ ALOUD - we cannot translate into every language, but it may also help many people to hear the document read aloud. You can use the Microsoft Edge browser to do this. Open Edge >> load this link >> right-click on the document and click 'Read aloud'

Please note these translations were carried out by professional linguist with secondary proofing. However, the original English version should be treated as the official source of statutory school staff duties. The original Department for Education document Keeping Children Safe in Education is licensed under the terms of the Open Government Licence v3.0.
