About the Webinar

This webinar will provide governors, senior leaders, headteachers and designated safeguarding leads (DSLs) with practical advice and guidance around their current safeguarding provision following the closure of schools and social distancing.

On 27th March, the DfE released their interim safeguarding guidance for all schools, colleges, maintained nurseries and pupil referral units in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The guidance aims to support and maintain effective safeguarding practice in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE). It provides advice on how education settings should adapt existing policies around critical areas such as child protection, DSLs, staff training, safer recruitment and online safety, to better reflect the current environment.

In this webinar Christina Leath, an experienced Head of Safeguarding and subject matter expert, will explore key points from the guidance and discuss how schools should look to strengthen current safeguarding practice and continue to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their children.

Disclaimer: Due to the nature of the current climate and in light of ongoing government policy review, please continue to check the latest DfE guidance on COVID-19 here.
