What people say
“There can be no issue of greater importance to parents and carers, or to schools, than the safety of their children. Outstanding schools typically exceed the minimum expectation of refresher training every three years for all staff and every two years for designated child protection staff. They provide annual training for all staff, supplemented by regular updates in staff meetings and underpinned by accurate records of the training undertaken by each member of staff, including volunteers and student teachers."
