School safeguarding training is statutory and vital to ensuring that children remain safe in school.

Child abuse statistics are naturally shocking. It is difficult to reconcile our position as one of the most developed and wealthy nations in the world with statistical evidence demonstrating that tens of thousands of children are abused and neglected every year.

Some professionals find it difficult to believe that abuse could happen to one of their pupils, or that one of their colleagues could harm children.

Aims and outcomes

  • Understand more about the role of your school in safeguarding children.
  • Be clear about your own professional safeguarding responsibilities, and those of others.
  • Define child abuse, neglect and exploitation.
  • Describe the key indicators of abuse and neglect.

This unit will clarify the context of child protection and safeguarding in the UK, outline each person’s responsibilities and explore different types of abuse and neglect.
