Whole School Safeguarding Training

In order for schools to create the most robust safeguarding culture for their children and young people, training should be more than just compliant, the best practice is to ensure that ALL staff are briefed regularly.  We provide a comprehensive, flexible package for DSLs and senior leaders to ensure you have everything you need to keep safeguarding training refreshed throughout the school year.

Our training is provided by Deborah, the strategic lead for a large MAT who understands the day to day safeguarding challenges DSLs and senior leaders face.  All her training is informed by the daily lived experience of children.


Our training not only covers issues such as County Lines and CCE but also develops staff professional skills in our Case Recording and Professional Curiosity units.  There is a short film briefing for each issue suitable for staff briefings or induction for new staff giving you the assurance that everyone receives the same consistent, clear messages.  There are also materials for a longer training session with scenarios and in-built self assessment for staff which results in a completion certificate.

Safer Recruitment

In line with Keeping Children Safe in Education it’s vital that schools create a culture that safeguards and promotes the welfare of children. An integral part of that culture is to ensure robust recruitment procedures are in place that deter and prevent people from securing employment in school who are unsuitable to work with children.

Professional Curiosity & Respectful Challenge training

Having a professionally curious mind-set allows us to explore and try to understand what is happening for a child or within the family, rather than making assumptions. Respectful challenge is an integral part of our safeguarding work with children and families, and can help us in our support for them. This training explores ‘thinking outside the box’, and considers effective ways of practising professional curiosity and respectful challenge when we suspect there is a risk of harm to a child or young person.

Safeguarding Case Recording training

The safeguarding record should reflect what is happening for the child at any given time - it is the narrative to the child’s daily lived experience. In this training we will consider how we record effectively and accurately, what information we should record and the data protection implications around the recording system we use.
