Safeguarding Supervision Support

Safeguarding is of the utmost importance in all education settings. Over time, the growth in the burden of responsibility for schools has only been matched by the increasing complexity and potential severity of safeguarding issues.

Alongside the growing appreciation of the challenges faced by young people, there is rightly a similar realisation of the need to support those providing this intensive, often high-stakes and emotionally demanding safeguarding and pastoral care.

ASCL Professional Development and Leadership Edge Safeguarding Supervision Support, delivered in a coaching style, will enable participants to safely process the emotional burden this work can place on safeguarding staff. It will support staff to feel reassured that they’re handling even the most challenging cases correctly. The Safeguarding Supervision Support has the added advantage of ensuring that the supervision skills and practices become embedded in the organisation and are ultimately self-sustaining.

Leadership Edge has an established credibility for assisting schools, academies and trusts to embed a sustainable coaching culture across and throughout organisations. Their Safeguarding Supervision Facilitators are experienced safeguarding leads themselves and are engaged in ongoing CPD from providers such as the NSPCC to ensure they remain at the forefront of the knowledge and skills to deliver Safeguarding supervision and training in schools.
