This webinar will provide designated safeguarding leads, senior leaders and teachers with practical guidance and advice on how to effectively communicate with pupils, parents and outside agencies in safe and sensitive manner following a safeguarding disclosure.
Information-sharing is a vital element of work to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. It’s essential that all communication during a disclosure is as accurate and complete as possible, and that it is clearly recorded. Without this, effective decisions cannot be made and inaccurate accounts can lead to children remaining unsafe, or the possibility of wrongful actions being taken.
In this webinar, Robin Watts, international safeguarding expert and education consultant who has worked with schools worldwide, identifies the key components of effective communication following a disclosure, why it’s so important to get right and what impact poor communication can have on everyone involved.
