This training is designed to provide a general overview, reminder and update of safeguarding knowledge. Whilst updates are important, it is a strong safeguarding culture that will support this training. Such cultures develop through regular, ongoing updates throughout the year which, as identified in Keeping Children Safe in Education will enable knowledge to be deepened on specific safeguarding issues. Therefore it is important that all settings recognise this as an overview only and continue to engage with the rest of Safeguarding Network’s materials over the course of the 2 year staff training calendar.  We also note and emphasise the statutory responsibility of ensuring ALL staff have read and understood at least part one of Keeping Children Safe in Education. We provide support with this through our membership materials and offer a knowledge checker to be able to evidence and consolidate learning from reading the guidance and through attending this training. We would advise that upon completing this training, all staff complete the knowledge checker, which can be allocated by the organisation’s DSL in the manage e-learning tab in the members area.
It’s aim is to provide a basic overview and for many of you a refresher.  By its very nature there will be things that you have covered before, however it is important that we revisit these regularly to ensure that your knowledge remains fresh and up to date.  This training will therefore cover the five key aims and objectives shown below.
