Termly Safeguarding Forums – for Headteachers and Senior Designated Safeguarding Officers

Safeguarding forums offer an opportunity for professionals who have a senior role in child protection to refresh their safeguarding knowledge and understanding, receive updates and share best practice with colleagues in a similar role from a wide range of settings. Forums aim to provide a safe environment in which to review current practices and seek support in areas while having the chance to develop a wider network of colleagues.

The forums are also designed to provide Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) with an alternative means of refreshing their Group 3 training (sanctioned by the Devon Safeguarding Children’s Board) as regular attendance will act as training to comply with Keeping Children Safe in Education.
