SGI0503190101 An introduction to Safeguarding for all Governors

Safeguarding Children is everybody’s responsibility and it is therefore recommended that all governors undertake basic training about safeguarding to ensure that they have the knowledge and information needed to help perform their functions and undertake their responsibilities effectively. This session will provide the basic awareness needed so that governors understand the importance of this area for Northamptonshire schools.


  • To understand what is meant by safeguarding and child protection;
  • To be aware of statutory requirements regarding safeguarding;
  • To understand the responsibilities of the Governing Body with regard to child protection procedures and in promoting safeguarding within schools;
  • To gain understanding of the role and responsibilities of the Headteacher, Designated Safeguarding Lead and other school staff with regard to these areas;
  • To be aware of the role of the Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board;
  • To understand the importance of early help and interagency working.

Our training is led by Lesley Pollard, experienced local Safeguarding Trainer and member of NSCB Learning & Development Committee
