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 within your area.
The forums are also designed to provide Designated Safeguarding Officers 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.
This is a two part course with the second session on 1st February 2021 from 13:15 to 15:45.
How can Collective Worship shape who we are as a school community, exemplify our vision and promote our ethos?
What are the characteristics of good Collective Worship and how well are we doing?
How can we best support staff, pupils, and volunteers to make the most of the time?
What resources are available that we can draw on?
How does Collective Worship link with Spiritual Moral, Social and Cultural development (SMSC), mental health and wellbeing, and the wider curriculum?
In this two-part course we will examine these questions in more detail and signpost resources to help you strengthen your provision.
