The statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (KCSIE) requires all staff working in schools and colleges to undergo safeguarding and child protection training. This training should be provided at induction and be regularly updated in line with advice from the local three safeguarding partners. In addition, all staff should receive regular safeguarding and child protection updates as required, and at least annually, to provide them with relevant skills and knowledge to safeguard children effectively.
To support Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) in schools provide staff training themselves in line with national guidance and local Kent processes, the Education Safeguarding Service have produced a PowerPoint presentation template and supplementary guidance document.
By purchasing this downloadable resource pack, you will be granted access to a PowerPoint presentation and PDF document to use for the year. The Education Safeguarding Service will update the pack as required following any changes to relevant guidance; please ensure you check for any updates before the content is delivered.
Some content specifically addresses procedures for Kent schools in line with the Kent Safeguarding Children Multi-Agency Partnership (KSCMP) procedures, however, schools and colleges outside of Kent are still able to use the content and should adapt the slides to reflect their own local procedures.
This training content and pack should only be used and delivered by an appropriately trained DSL (recommended to be the lead DSL) and is for use within your school only.
The pack has been updated and is based on the KCSIE 2022 guidance and is suitable for use in the academic year 2022-23 and is ready for use in training from now.
Please remember you are purchasing access to this content for the academic year 1 August 2022 - 31 July 2023. The Whole School Safeguarding Training Pack for DSLs 2022-2023 can be purchased individually, or it can also be purchased as part of the Safeguarding Support Package for Schools.
