Following the success of the quiz devised by EPHA to check whether staff have read, understood and retained information about Keeping Children Safe in Education, I have produced a series of “Seven-minute Safeguarding Staff Meetings” on a range of topics. These are intended to be used to keep your staff informed and up to date about key safeguarding topics, and each “staff meeting” includes a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying information handout.
Topics so far include the Prevent Duty, Child Sexual Exploitation, Female Genital Mutilation, Managing a Disclosure, Whistleblowing, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Neglect, and the role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
I will keep adding to these so that you can offer a programme of training that can be tucked into a staff meeting, in just seven minutes! On the webpage you will also find an attendance register that you can download and use to keep a record of the training that your staff have done.
