  • Engaging with children and families and contributing to multi-agency working
  • Understanding and assessing risk using approaches such as signs of safety and contextual safeguarding

  • Using data analysis to inform safeguarding strategy
  • Responding to disclosures in line with BEST evidence and child centred approaches  
  • Understanding the impact of trauma and abuse and how schools can develop trauma-sensitive environments
  • Applying the thematic learning from serious case reviews
  • Creating a safe culture
