Support for safeguarding in schools
The Standards and Learning Effectiveness Service (SLES) provides a range of services to support schools, academies and FE colleges with improving provision for safeguarding, some of which are traded. These include conducting safeguarding practice reviews in schools, offering bespoke consultancy in schools, providing whole staff training in safeguarding, and conducting investigations where there are complaints or concerns raised. SLES also facilitate regular networks for Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) which are largely grouped within Education Improvement Partnerships (EIPs). All DSLs are welcome to attend and contribute ideas for agendas and discussion items. Please contact the SLES safeguarding team for more information.
