As a clerk, you will need to evidence that your boards are reading the latest version of Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) on GovernorHub each year.

In GovernorHub, there is a link to the latest version of KCSiE available, and this will be automatically updated whenever a new version comes into effect.

Recording confirmations for KCSiE

Governors and Trustees should head to their Profile page. They can do this by clicking on their name at the top of the screen (their name will show where it says "Hannah Cullen" below).

You will then need to click on the 'Profile' option.

Once on their profile page, they should click on the Declarations & Confirmations tab.

Here they should read the document itself (make sure they read the whole thing) and confirm that they've done so using the Confirm button.

* Note - the link provided will always be the most up-to-date version of KCSiE

Once confirmed, the date of the confirmation is recorded on the system.

Re-confirming previous KCSiE confirmations

To re-confirm that governors/trustees have read and understood KCSiE each year at the beginning of term they need to reset their last confirmation by clicking the blue 'clear'

They show their latest actions by clicking confirm

Please note that any previous confirmation date recorded on the system, will be overwritten by the new date when they press the Confirm button to evidence up to date compliance.

Confirming on someone else's behalf

Board admins can record/edit this information on behalf of other members. To do so, go to the members area within the Governing Board.

Click on the arrow next to the member's name on the Members tab, then on 'View their Full Profile' beneath.

  • Then head to the 'Confirmations' tab as directed above, and use the Confirm button. The confirmation will be made in your name (as admin), rather than the governor's name.

Custom board confirmations

Should you have set up specific confirmations for your board they too will appear in a governor/trustee's profile area. Governors and trustees should clear and confirm just as they do with KCSiE

Downloading evidence of confirmations

Board confirmations appear in your Compliance Checks report available in the Downloads tab.
