Webinar Runtime: 68 Minutes
This webinar, in collaboration with the National Children’s Bureau, will help DSLs, Deputy DSLs, SENCOs and school leaders responsible for safeguarding to understand the legal framework around safeguarding pupils with SEND and identifying methods of best practice.
The Keeping Children in Safe in Education (KCSiE) 2019 guidance states that for children with SEND:
- Governing bodies and proprietors should ensure their child protection policy reflects the fact that additional barriers can exist when recognising abuse and neglect.
Furthermore, DSLs and Deputy DSLs should have regular training and refresh their knowledge and skills so that they:
- are alert to the specific needs of children in need, those with special educational needs and young carers.
In this webinar, the National Children’s Bureau and the Council for Disabled Children draw on their expertise to provide a comprehensive overview into implementing effective safeguarding strategies.
