This is to ensure all education provisions in Somerset receive a consistent message and information on safeguarding and child protection.
It is preferable that setting's D/DSL’s attend all three sessions offered over the academic year, or send someone with safeguarding knowledge from their setting.
You do not need to attend the briefing nearest to you if you live/travel elsewhere that’s more convenient.
It is our aim in the briefings to have safeguarding updates, and Ofsted news linked to safeguarding and information on contextual safeguarding (local and outside of school risks). This is because this is a vital part of Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019.
We will also have speakers from other agencies such as police, csc etc.
There will also be a Q and A slot for you to raise any issues.
Maximum of 2 bookings per site.
