"Robust and regular safeguarding training is vital to ensuring that the climate, safety and well-being of my schools is exceptional. The use of external providers to provide that specialist know how but also to provide that latest professional advice makes the training that much clearer for my staff and means that my students are better looked after. This training is not only for teaching staff but also for governors, associate staff, students and parents/carers which means that all parts of our school community develop that ethos of safeguarding"
MR HEHIR – EXECUTIVE HEAD BMAT
“External safeguarding audits are carried out once a year on all safeguarding procedures and practices across my school. This ensures accurate and effective validation of our procedures but also provides that much needed critical friend which ensures that we not only meet statutory responsibility but also go above and beyond. It is not about merely ensuring safeguarding is effective but it is about ensuring that we provide a place where our safeguarding practices are leading the way in the educational sector so that all stakeholders are truly safe and thrive in my school.”
