This episode offers a wealth of practical insights, advice and ideas for effective safeguarding practice in schools. We look at general good safeguarding practice as well as safeguarding during Covid-19.

Our experts tackle issues including the key tenets of effective safeguarding, safer working practice, making effective referrals and working with children’s social care, the “trends” to be aware of in 2021 – such as sexual harassment and abuse, self-harm, sexting, safety.

In terms of Covid, we look at safeguarding considerations ahead of September, how safeguarding practice has evolved during the pandemic, what changes are here to stay, the current issues we are on the look-out for and what our response should be.

Our guests are Elizabeth Rose, a former secondary designated safeguarding lead and local authority safeguarding in education advisor who is now an independent safeguarding consultant; Paddy Smith, assistant vice principal responsible for student welfare at Bede Academy in Northumberland; Rachael Adderley, assistant headteacher and the designated safeguarding lead at Brune Park Community School in Gosport; Al Kingsley, chair of the Hampton Academies Trust & the KWEST Trust as well as MD at EdTech company NetSupport.
