Designated Safeguarding Leads – Refresher Training Sessions
This full day course meets the statutory requirements of the two-year Refresher Training for Designated Safeguarding Leads in schools.
As part of the arrangements which must be in place as required by S.175/S.157 of the Education Act 2002 and “Keeping Children Safe in Education” all schools must have a member of the leadership team as their Designated Safeguarding Lead.
This person must take lead responsibility for dealing with child protection issues, referring concerns of significant harm, providing advice and guidance to support all staff to carry out their safeguarding duties, overseeing the school provision of early help and liaising with other agencies as required.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead must receive training which gives them the knowledge and skills needed to fulfil their responsibilities and this training must be updated every two years. The course that we have planned meets these statutory requirements.
Our training is led by Lesley Pollard
Experienced local Safeguarding Trainer and member of NSCB Learning & Development Committee
