In this Guidance Area we post documents connected to identity, diversity, equality, community, SMSC including British values, safeguarding, bullying and the National Curriculum.

Summary documents made by TLN of the latest guidance from the Ofsted Inspection Handbook, DfE British values and SMSC Guidance, the DfE Prevent Duty for Schools. These can be useful for delivering staff training on SMSC or Schools Linking. We update these when documents are updated so please check back here:
