Staff Commitment to Safeguarding
Staff members are required to familiarise themselves with the Safeguarding government guidelines annually. They are provided with hard and electronic copies for their reference and are aware of their statutory duty to read the relevant sections.
Staff receive annual training delivered by the DSL and in addition, they undertake an accredited online training course at the start of each academic year.
All Staff (including NQT’s, mid-year starters and supply) are asked to refer to the Gladesmore Safeguarding Handbook – which outlines safeguarding issues, government guidelines, roles and responsibilities, and the reporting process.
Staff are required to sign evidence forms as proof of receipt of safeguarding information and these, along with course certificates are collated each year.
