Please see our latest Safeguarding guidance here which we hope is helpful.
“I got so much out of the course, the scenarios and break-out rooms were carefully orchestrated. I saw safeguarding from many different perspectives and the course has certainly made me think more mindfully about student voice. Thank you for a very worthwhile 12 hours- it passed by too quickly!”
“This is just a quick message to say thank you for the last 3 days. I found the course very useful for me as I embark on the DSL role in my new school. I look forward to working with you again in the future.”
“It was a great group of people, a really interesting and useful range of activities. My favourite was the Tuesday session where you posed multiple choice questions and then we voted and discussed - I thought that was incredibly useful and a real eye opener!”
“Many thanks for the extremely useful training this weekend. You both managed to fully engage us with this challenging topic and, typing up my notes, I realised just how much we covered.”
“Just wanted to say thanks again for the very informative training. It was also a pleasure to meet you both. As I said your class was very engaging and practical. Having been through numerous trainings, this was by far one of the best.”
“Thank you for visiting and giving a wonderful training for us all. I appreciate your time and expertise shared with us, and greatly enjoyed the discussions. There is a lot I have learned, and a lot more conversation to be had amongst our school team here as we continue to fine tune our child safeguarding protocols and procedures.”
"Safety and security don't just happen; they are the result of collective consensus and public investment.We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear"

A report of findings and recommendations will be submitted by ICPA upon completion. This interim audit will focus on your policies, personnel, and procedures.
