As the Designated Safeguarding Lead (or deputy) you should take the lead responsibility for safeguarding of children within your school, providing advice and support to staff, pupils, families and multi-agencies. Keeping Children Safe in Education (2021) states 'you are most likely to have a complete safeguarding picture and be the most appropriate person to advise on the response to safeguarding concerns'.

Therefore, it is essential that your knowledge of safeguarding and child protection procedures is not only in-depth but also up to date. Keeping Children Safe in Education requires the Designated Safeguarding Lead and any deputies to undergo training every two years in order to provide them with the knowledge and skills required to carry out their role, not only to provide support and advice but to ensure they meet the statutory requirements.

This self-paced safeguarding training session is designed to refresh and update Designated Safeguarding and Deputy Safeguarding Leads around the broad areas of responsibilities and activities related to their roles. Providing them with support on how updates and changes in statutory legislation and best practice guidance, since their previous training, affects their role and safeguarding practices within the setting. Ensuring they are up to date with any relevant developments.
