There is certainly no denying it. In ‘normal’ times working in schools has its rewards and challenges. However, if you are the Designated Safeguarding Lead or a member of the Safeguarding Team the challenges, anxiety and stresses of safeguarding and protecting the welfare of the children in your care can mean the pressure bar is particularly precarious!
What with the changes to safeguarding legislation, COVID-19, lack of resources, understanding the changes in local safeguarding partnership procedures and supporting staff, children and families with safeguarding concerns things can very quickly become over whelming.
Why is effective supervision important?
Serious case reviews continue to highlight the critical importance of having ‘appropriate safeguarding arrangements in place for the supervision of staff who have contact with children and families’. Effective supervision provides support, coaching and training for the safeguarding practitioner and promotes the interests of the child whilst playing a critical role on the child’s welfare.
‘supervision supports practitioners to reflect critically on the impact of their decisions’
