Safeguarding should always be at the heart of what we do in schools. Boards play an important role in ensuring this is the case and are ultimately accountable for ensuring effective safeguarding in their school(s).
This webinar provides guidance for boards on meeting their statutory duties for safeguarding, including reflections on our experiences with COVID-19.
The following will be explored:
What is Safeguarding?
Who is responsible for fulfilling the statutory duties?
Update on current guidance and legislation
How to monitor Safeguarding
How to develop systems to ensure you are compliant
Why a whole school approach is so important
What to do if there are concerns
What has COVID-19 taught us about safeguarding?
All delegates receive an electronic copy of the presentation and supporting materials and resources to help them to be more impactful in their governance role.
Who should attend? Any governors and trustees who have responsibilities for Safeguarding, those who are new to governance or any governors or trustees who want to understand more about this important area and the COVID-19 considerations.
