Safeguarding Children

Posted on

All New Directions staff are thoroughly checked before they work for the company, and this provides schools with all the necessary assurance that we are playing our part in keeping children safe.  However, our teachers sometimes miss out on the training on Child Protection that school-based colleagues receive.  So to support both schools and the professional development of our staff, we offer our own training during holiday periods. In October, an external trainer validated by DfE provided a half day’s introduction to safeguarding for twenty candidates, including primary and secondary teachers, and support staff.
