To infinity and beyond!
Today has been a really exciting day for me, the culmination of many months of hard work and critical reflection has paid off as my training has been approved and accredited by Derby and Derbyshire SCB’s. This means that the Boards have evaluated a range of my materials and lesson plans and have approved them as blummin’ amazing (I may be paraphrasing a bit there!), and they are happy to endorse my work and recommend me to the DSCB partners as a trusted and safe training provider with a sound safeguarding knowledge. I seriously could not be happier!
Over the last few months I have taken a really critical look at my materials and really changed them around ensuring that not only do they they still reflect best practice but the content is as up to date as it possibly can be.
I have always had a clear focus on empowering young people and ensuring they are at the heart of all we do, but I have also really considered parental engagement and I am currently looking at how we engage with parents better – there has to be a brilliant way of doing this so I am trawling through all the latest research to try and pick out some ideas which we can trial.
Also new in are specialist sessions which will engage ‘hard to reach’ families as part of the Troubled Families programme, early years (nurseries and childminders), governors and SEND students and of course I continue to push the 360 Safe, which is a free school self evaluation tool which takes a holistic view of Online Safety.
I am running several full day sessions in May on Managing Safeguarding Incidents and Evidencing Outstanding Practice with venues such as the Gothic Warehouse at Cromford Mill, Matlock and the Casa Hotel in Chesterfield – a buffet lunch is included (going for the big sell here folks!) Dates also to be announced for Derby City. These sessions are aimed at DSL’s and SLT’s who need a really good understanding of sexting and how to manage this within your setting and a good look at Ofsted and how we evidence best practice.
**You do not have to be a Derby City or Derbyshire school to attend these sessions**
If you are interested in booking a place or would like me to come into your setting to deliver training directly to your staff team, students, parents or governors please just drop me a line. I really look forward to hearing from you.
