During this unit, we will raise awareness of the need to demonstrate that the governing board is taking safeguarding responsibilities seriously and provide an audit trail that compliance with guidance is in place. Where it is found that safeguarding issues are not being met by the school or the GB, there could be profound consequences for all involved.

Aims and outcomes

  • Develop an understanding of safeguarding.
  • Develop skills and confidence in the governing board.
  • Learn how governors ensure safeguarding is in place.
  • Understand how to ensure policy and procedure are followed by staff and volunteers.
  • Know how to signpost to further guidance, training and learning opportunities.
