Safeguarding – Level 1 (compulsory for all teachers who have never received this training or those who have not had appropriate safeguarding training for 3 years)

As far as schools and staff are concerned, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children has never had a higher profile. 'Safeguarding' is now a limiting judgement for Ofsted and it is a statutory requirement for all staff in schools to update their safeguarding training every three years.

It is imperative that all staff in schools are clear about their role and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils. Moreover, it is essential that they have a clear understanding of the broader safeguarding agenda, how it relates to and differs from 'child protection', who does what and when, what to look for etc.

The safeguarding training on offer is Level 1 Basic Awareness training. The learning outcomes for attendees are as follows:

• Understand 'safeguarding' and 'child protection'
• Clarify roles and responsibilities in school
• Implications for supply staff
• Identify possible signs and symptoms of abuse
• Consider possible barriers and pitfalls identified by research
• Explore guidance for safer working practice

Certificates of attendance for Induction & Safeguarding will be sent via email to all attendees along with online links to support materials & resources.

To access an online session , a login and password will be sent to each participant with additional guidance and support for logging in.
