Safeguarding scenarios for staff training

Each month a scenario will appear on this webpage. The intention is that these are taken to staff meetings for discussion with the aim of reinforcing the school’s policy and procedures.

Discussion points will appear in a bulleted list. Not all of these scenarios will reach the threshold for onward referral but will need a considered response which needs to be proportionate and appropriate.
