Page last updated: 29/08/2017

Level 2 Training - Legislative Framework:

  • Inspecting Safeguarding in Early Years, Education and Skills Settings (Ofsted, August 2016) states that there should be 'clear and effective arrangements for staff development and training in respect of protection and care of learners'.
  • ​Keeping Children Safe in Edu​cation (September 2016) ​states that ​all staff should receive appropriate child protection training which is regularly updated. It refers to the role of the Designated Lead in that they should 'ensure each member of staff has access to and understands the school's Child Protection policy and procedures, especially new and part-time staff'. It also says that governing bodies and proprietors of all schools should ensure their safeguarding arrangements take into account the procedures and practice of the local authority as part of inter-agency safeguarding procedures set up by the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB). In Essex, the LSCB is the Essex Safeguarding Children Board (ESCB) and it has produced guidance for organisations on training requirements. 
  • The SET Procedures (ESCB, 2017) state: each establishment (school or college) should have a designated and deputy professional lead for safeguarding. This role should be clearly set out and supported with a regular training and development program in order to fulfil the child welfare and safeguarding responsibilities. 
  • Working Together, 2015 explains: Regulation 5 of the Local Safeguarding Children Boards Regulations 2006 sets out that the functions of the LSCB, in relation to:
    • developing policies and procedures for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in the area of the authority, including policies and procedures in relation to:
    • the action to be taken where there are concerns about a child's safety of welfare, including thresholds for intervention;
    • training of persons who work with children or in services affecting the safety and welfare of children.
To support schools in ensuring all staff are appropriately trained, the presentations and on-line learning opportunities below are available. Schools are, of course, able to make their own arrangements for training and are not required to use these tools. They should, however, ensure they are meeting statutory requirements (above) in training all staff in child protection practice and procedures. 

The Essex Safeguarding Children Board offers face to face Level 2 training. Further details can be accessed via the ESCB​ website.

Case Studies

The DfE has developed  3 family case studies to illustrate many of the issues that practitioners are likely to encounter when investigating childhood neglect. The 3 families are:

  • Evans
  • Henderson/Taylor/Miller
  • Akhtar
​The case studies provide first person narratives giving the perspective of each adult and child.

Accompanying videos to these case studies are available on our YouTube channel.  The guidance and exercise documents, presentations and notes and handouts that complement these family case studies are also available.​
