Highlights of week ending 2 April 2021

This week, Ofsted was ordered to investigate schools’ safeguarding policies. Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, announced that the education watchdog will undertake an “immediate review” of child protection plans in both state and private schools across England. The review comes in the wake of pressure from the Labour Party following over 8,000 reports of sexual harassment and abuse within schools on a website for survivors.
