VIRTUAL - Supervising to Safeguard in Education – introduction for senior leaders
Date & Time:
This is a two-hour session for a maximum of 16 people.
This introductory course is for staff in schools, particularly but not exclusively to Designated Safeguarding Leads and others in leadership roles, to support them in providing supervision, necessary advice and guidance to staff who are working with vulnerable children who may be at risk of harm and in need of support.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Discuss the core components of effective safeguarding supervision, why it is important and what lessons from practice tell us about its relationship to positive outcomes for children – including how staff wellbeing and emotional responses may impact on decision making.
- Consider the role that the supervisor can play within the safeguarding system both within their own organisation and at the interface with other organisations.
- Discuss how to develop and maintain a positive supervision culture within the organisation.
