Professional Casework Supervision 

The Government's, ‘Working Together To Safeguard Children 2015’ requires safeguarding lead professionals to receive appropriate supervision, echoed by learning from serious case reviews. We are trained to offer supervision to support designated safeguarding leads and front-line practitioners with any professional concerns they may have about individual children and families. Regular supervision ensures that staff are supported to manage the emotional component of this challenging role, that practice is safe, and that work with children and families is quality assured and reduce professional isolation.   

Policy And Practice Development

We support you to review and update your school safeguarding policy and procedures with a focus on ensuring that they are personal and relevant to your school community, you can be confident that this will incorporate the latest safeguarding legislation and guidance.

Working with a multi-agency team, we adopt a child-centred approach to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people.
