· Training- all staff receive appropriate Safeguarding training which is regularly updated

· Ensuring a safe learning environment

· Knowing the signs of abuse and what to look for

· Making referrals to Customer First

· Identifying children in need of extra help or at risk of significant harm

· Being aware of the schools’ safeguarding procedures
