Keep Children Safe in Education with Our Online Safeguarding Courses
Safeguarding is an essential requirement for all that undertake a duty of care, especially in the education sector.
As part of the national child protection scheme, safeguarding for children must be maintained at all schools in the UK. The appropriate legislation is supplied to protect any children at risk of harm or prevent further abuse.
Ensuring staff are adequately trained in safeguarding is a fundamental measure for all schools and educational establishments. More important than a child’s education is their overall safety and wellbeing. At Services For Education, we ensure:
- Children are protected from abuse and neglect
- The overall health, wellbeing and development of a child are always maintained
- Children have a safe and comfortable environment to develop in
- Children are not discriminated against for their age, race, gender, sexual orientation or religious belief.
Our expert safeguarding team provides a full spectrum of safeguarding courses across all levels of teaching and education.view safeguarding courses

‘Due to the nature of the materials the course was very intense, however the presenters were very knowledgeable and took their time to fully explain and answer questions thoroughly.
The course materials were very detailed and concise and I am sure will be invaluable as I start this journey into an area that is completely alien. It was great to go over specific examples and talk through the best way to approach the concerns.’

Protecting children and vulnerable people from harm is a fundamental provision for all schools and colleges across London.
Safeguarding must be established with official policies and procedures for all schools, childcare settings, colleges, clubs and other provisions that work with children and vulnerable adults.
The structure for safeguarding legislation and guidance is founded around six principles incorporated within the Care Act of 2014:
Any institution or individual working with children must protect them from abuse, harm or neglect. It is the duty of all schools, colleges, academies and businesses to establish necessary safeguarding measures so that professionals can recognise:
- Mental, physical, emotional or sexual abuse
- Neglect, abandonment, malnourishment and poor hygiene
- Trafficking or exploitation
Organisations must also teach the National and Local guidance with the appropriate documentation regarding safeguarding and child protection.
Official guidance for safeguarding is available from the Department for Education (DFE) 2018 ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’.
The NHS has provided a ‘Safeguarding’ mobile app to help make professionals, carers, and citizens aware of the latest safeguarding legislation and guidance.
Safeguarding in London is crucial as it enables schools to monitor children and vulnerable people who might be at risk of harm, neglect and abuse. Whether inside or outside the school, safeguarding supports children to realise their potential and continue their development safely.
With this training, teachers can educate children to avoid dangerous people outside the premises while securing the safety of the children inside by preventing any unwelcome individuals from entering.
Every child has a right to fulfil their potential, and all schools must do everything in their power to ensure the child has a safe education and secure pathway of development.
