Leading School Safeguarding – DSL team training
February 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This course brings the designated safeguarding team staff and safeguarding governors completely up to date with current safeguarding legislation. Delegates will learn about the key updates within Keeping children safe in education (KCSIE) September 2021 and the implications for safeguarding within the inspection framework including specific advice on implementing the new behaviour criteria and supporting the well-being agenda.
Following the recent Ofsted review, this course will support delegates to consider the greater focus within the inspection framework and KCSIE on peer-to-peer abuse, sexual harassment and sexual violence.
You will be given time to focus on exploring how staff perceive safeguarding leadership and discussing together how safeguarding values are interpreted within schools.
An additional element of this course is the inclusion of a safer recruitment section, to ensure the DSL team are upskilled in all of the elements of safer recruitment which have been introduced into KCSIE. This includes new advice on the advertisement stage, short-listing, interview and appointment, and is essential information for school leadership prior to the next round of staff recruitment.
