How do we support

Our subscription services, data analysis packages and bespoke consultancy  are designed to meet the needs of individual schools and academies, school clusters and multi-academy trusts.   We provide practical support, training and targeted strategies across all key stages of education to identify and address safeguarding and attendance issues.

  • Help schools identify safeguarding concerns early
  • Provide information, interventions and strategies for improving the attendance of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children
  • Provide bespoke training and whole school/individual staff development

Safe Schools and Settings

Everyone has a role to play in safeguarding children, whether this is identifying or raising concerns early of safeguarding issues or putting into place best practice to prevent cyberbullying and to maintain online safety.

We work with anyone in your school community to ensure that you are compliant with local and national expectations.

Our safeguarding subscription service provides peace of mind that your school or setting has access to the most up-to-date safeguarding information and advice, policies and procedures, ensuring you are aware of changes to legislation including guidance on implementation. 

Our safeguarding audit identifies any gaps in your safeguarding requirements, providing an action plan for corrective and preventative measures and helping with change improvements.

Our comprehensive training programmes include:

  • Whole-school staff Child Protection raising
  • Designated Safeguarding Lead training
  • Safer Recruitment
  • Extremism, Radicalisation and PREVENT training suitable for all school staff
  • Training for Governors
  • Safer Working Practices
  • Safeguarding for Administrators
  • Bespoke packages to meet your needs
