Safeguarding

Safeguarding for Governors: How to Strategically Support Your DSL and the SLT

About this event

Governors are a key part of the effective safeguarding process for any school.

It's imperative that an effective safeguarding strategy is in place and reinforced by key staff members, such as the headteacher, governors and DSL, but what does this practically mean?

When our governors are being training and supported by the people they are in place to hold accountable – how effective can things be?

During the session we will be discussing the following:

            • How to provide sufficient challenge when looking at safeguarding in your school
            • What policies and procedures are in place or need revising 
            • How to create a whole-school approach to safeguarding

Let us introduce you to this week's professional speaker
