Ensure leading safeguarding provision throughout your school


Why is this conference relevant?

'Children are arriving in schools with a combination of needs, often linked to disruption in their family lives, at a time when schools' capacity to respond is stretched to capacity,' Judith Blake, Chair of the Local Government Authority's Children and Young People Board

The vital role of schools in identifying and supporting vulnerable children and their families has been highlighted more than ever this year. From early interventions to ensuring a culture of safeguarding which pervades both the curriculum and the school community, safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.

This highly practical digital conference will refresh and equip you to lead outstanding safeguarding provision in partnership. Explore strategies for cross service collaboration and escalation, build your networks of support and examine how to evidence and improve your safeguarding culture and early help interventions.

Often an isolated and emotionally challenging role, this conference will enable you to plan for the upcoming year with confidence that you are leading the way in safeguarding the young people in your care.
