As children and young people return to school, the NSPCC have predicted a rise in the number of young people disclosing reports of abuse and neglect. It is vital that staff within the education sector are equipped to respond to these concerns.
At the Ann Craft Trust, we are hosting six online training modules at the end of the school day for SENCO Reps, Teachers, Deputies and Heads of Schools, to focus on the positive approaches to proactively keeping Children and Young People safe and secure in school.
The modules will run from 3.30pm-5.00pm and will develop learning about the whole child, their family, their life and the child within their school environment.
The sessions are accessible for Mainstream and Special Schools and will focus upon the following topics:
Wednesday 28 October
Safeguarding Disabled Children and Young People at home, school and in the community; why do they face additional risks of harm and abuse?
Wednesday 4 November
Seeing the child and family with a whole life perspective; working to support children and families where children have SEND including parents with learning needs.
Wednesday 11 November
The Voice of the Child in child protection; understanding behaviour as communication.
Wednesday 25 November
Working through the hard times; multi-agency practice preventing breakdown at home and at school or exclusion for children with SEND and disabilities.
Wednesday 2 December
Sexual Exploitation and safe and unsafe friends; safeguarding disabled young people and those with SEND.
Tuesday 8 December
Moving towards adulthood, transitions and Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC).
£30 per session
£150 for all 6 sessions
Sessions cumulatively develop; therefore, it is beneficial if you are able to attend all sessions, but this is not a requirement.
We will invoice after the first session has taken place. If you need to cancel your place, we will require 28 days’notice, otherwise you will incur a cancellation charge. You will be able to send a colleague in your place instead.
