Our Safeguarding Confrence 2016, will take place on Thursday 1 December. It will support schools to implement the DfE’s revised statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ and particularly how to safeguard vulnerable children.

It will focus on supporting schools to work in partnership with other agencies to promote children and young people's wellbeing and mental health. It will also consider how Ofsted examine safeguarding as part of the inspection process, including the school's approach to equality, diversity and social, moral, spiritual and cultural education. 



Keynote Speakers


We are joined by Professor Dame Sue Bailey a Consultant Child and Adolescent Forensic psychiatrist and Professor of Mental Health Policy in North West of England. She has extensive experience in the field of children and young people's mental health and well being.

Her keynote speech will give an overview of the current challenges and offer advice to schools to support effective partnerships with other agencies to promote children's well being and mental health.
