Please see Shared school resources 18 July 2017: Whole-School Training Package We have substantially revised the resources we provide for use by Designated Safeguarding Leads across schools and colleges in Norfolk to help them fulfil the requirement to provide safeguarding training to whole-school staff.
Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016 states that (in addition to their induction) “all staff members should receive appropriate safeguarding and child protection training which is regularly updated.” In Norfolk the requirement is to undertake this safeguarding training at least annually.
Maintaining the single central record is a key responsibility for schools and colleges and checking the document plays an important part of inspecting practice.
A new course has been developed during Spring 2017 that is for those senior leaders who have responsibility for ensuring their single record is complete and accurate as well as being compliant with legislation and guidance.
Harmful Sexual Behaviour A briefing document and advice on how to request a Harmful Sexual Behaviour Case Consultation can now be accessed on our Guidance page.
The new Harmful Sexual Behaviour Change Co-Ordinators and a Specialist Clinical Psychologist will be running a series of free, 1 ½ hour, twilight sessions around the county in the autumn term.
You can access a wide range of online courses via our Safeguarding e-Academy - Courses takes approximately 1-3 hours with a short test of knowledge at the end for which successful participants will be able to print a certificate of completion.
There are now 7 Practitioner Forums up and running in each district area giving practitioners the opportunity to understand each others roles and what local provision is available in each part of the county.
27th September 2018 In recent DSL training we have been able to share hardcopy examples of safeguarding resources that local schools have developed.
Those schools have given us permission to share their materials electronically so they can be used, adapted and developed by colleagues across Norfolk.
Managing the Single Central Record All schools and colleges must keep a single central record.
