Event Summary

With changes to statutory guidance on Keeping Children Safe in Education published last year, and a gradual increase in safeguarding referrals from schools to children services, effectively responding to safeguarding concerns is a priority for all schools and colleges. 

Join Westminster Insight’s Safeguarding Children in Schools Conference for expert guidance to help you foster a culture of safeguarding in your school or college to keep children safe from all forms of harm and abuse.

Two years on from the Ofsted review, how can schools and colleges continue to safeguard against child on child sexual violence and sexual harassment in schools?

You will learn how to foster a culture of safeguarding across the whole school and develop safer recruitment procedures for staff.

Additionally, attend focused workshops on developing robust safeguarding strategies, internet safety PSHE and RSE curriculums.
