Event description

Statutory safeguarding training requirements for schools are detailed in the DfE guidance document Keeping children safe in schools and colleges. In brief the guidance says that: •Whole school staff training is required to be an on-going process with at least one formal training every year (at least every two years to be delivered by external providers) •Designated lead teachers for child protection are required to have initial training and refresher training at least every two years •Designated lead teachers are required additionally to have regular updates ie safeguarding prevention briefings etcetera •All staff appointment panels must have at least one member who has successfully attended the DfE approved safer recruitment course. There is no longer a requirement to train governing bodies. However, training does support the governing body to meet its statutory duties in the guidance.
