The Safeguarding Alliance

Safeguarding for Governors and Trustees


4 hours

Suitable for

School Safeguarding Governors & Trustees/Chair of Trust Board


Online, Bespoke

As a Governing/Trustee Board, you have overall responsibility for safeguarding.

Therefore, it’s best if everyone on the board has had safeguarding training even though there’s no specific statutory requirement to do so.

Having the training ensures all governors understand their responsibilities both individually and collectively. For UK Schools this is explained in paragraph 168 of the Governance Handbook.
