Fulfilling your responsibilities for Safeguarding and Health & Safety - for Governors and Trustees

Safeguarding should be at the heart of everything we do in schools and is a statutory duty shared by all governors or trustees. The Health & Safety considerations of your school are vital to maintaining a great environment for teaching and learning.

This session will provide an overview of Safeguarding and Health & Safety statutory responsibilities and provide guidance on how to effectively meet your governance duties. 
  • What is Safeguarding and Health & Safety? Why are they important?
  • Who is responsible for fulfilling the statutory duties
  • Update on current guidance and legislation
  • How to monitor Safeguarding and Health & safety effectively

Who should attend?
Any governors and trustees of all phases, who are responsible for Safeguarding or Health & Safety, those who are new to governance or any governors or trustees who want to understand more about these two important areas.

Julie Taylor - With over 25 years in education and Governance, Julie is an experienced chair and National Leader of Governance who has a track record of supporting governance boards across Essex and beyond.
