The Government’s, ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (2018) requires Safeguarding Lead professionals to receive appropriate supervision, and this is reinforced by Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership (BSCP) and learning from serious case reviews.
The purpose of such supervision is to reach a balance between personal support and guidance, managerial review and case management analysis, encouraging reflection upon good practice. The impact of effective supervision is a safer, more reflective school setting.
