Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020 makes it clear that all staff members should receive safeguarding training and child protection training, which should be regularly updated. These updates should be in line with advice from the Local Safeguarding Children Partnership.
This course can be delivered either at a venue with social distancing restrictions in place, or alternatively, remotely via Zoom, to meet the needs of the setting.
School safeguarding training course content
This School safeguarding training course is designed to update the knowledge and skills of all staff in the setting. It is a three-hour course which covers the following areas;
Session 1 – Learners will refresh their understanding of what child abuse is and how it can be recognised. This will include an awareness of emerging safeguarding concerns such as radicalisation, ‘honour-based’ violence, children missing from education and ‘County lines’.
Session 2 – During this session learners will receive updates on national and local changes to safeguarding practice, guidance and reporting pathways.
Session 3 – In this final session learners will have the opportunity to use the knowledge gained from the previous sessions, using scenarios to apply their understanding of abuse and how to manage disclosure. There is a particular emphasis on developing the learner’s confidence to act on their concerns, recognising that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. It also provides the opportunity to build a team understanding of how within the environment they can work together to safeguarding children.
