It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults
We have given safeguarding its own menu as a demonstration of its importance. For the first time we are also offering professional learning under the three subcategories of compliance, curriculum and culture. Our key partner for compliance is Education Child Protection (ECP). We have commissioned a greater number of the basic programs with more regularity; aiming to reduce the costly arrangements that individual schools have been making until now. Under curriculum, we have an online safety consultant who will provide termly updates drawing on latest trends, research & resources to support schools. For child protection, DSL and online safety we have commissioned specific sessions for special schools or mainstream settings that are interested in the different needs of children and young people with SEND or vulnerabilities. Under the category of Culture, we have another first - we are working with Leo Powell who has expertise on County Lines and the issues this brings for young people. The two-session program he is delivering will look at developing understanding along with what schools can do to support the community.
Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future
