Training Grid

An adaptable resource to ensure you are clear about what constitutes 'appropriate training' for your staff, governors and volunteers.


“There are clear and effective arrangements for staff development and training in respect of the protection and care of children and learners.”

Inspecting Safeguarding in early years, education and skills settings

“All staff should receive appropriate safeguarding and child protection training which is regularly updated. In addition, all staff should receive safeguarding and child protection updates (for example, via email, e-bulletins and staff meetings), as required, and at least annually, to provide them with relevant skills and knowledge to safeguard children effectively.”

So everyone needs to be trained, but what is appropriate, regular and as required? This is for schools to define depending on their learner profile, the needs of their staff team and what goes on in their local area.

We’ve devised a structured approach that sets out clearly what your school expects of staff. It includes guidance for properly resourcing your training strategy and suggestions for cost effective ways to meet your goals.
