Experience has shown us that teachers and frontline school staff are often given too much – and too graphically detailed – information in safeguarding training, focusing on anatomically precise signs of physical or sexual abuse. Such detail is excessive for the majority of school staff, who are more likely to raise safeguarding concerns discovered through disclosures, conversations, changes in behaviours or viewing online interactions.
Unlike the more detailed training we provide for Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs), this course is designed to meet the needs of frontline school staff, focusing on what signs to look for, how to report and refer concerns, how to manage conversations about safeguarding and how to keep children safe online.
This robust and informative training offers school leaders the reassurance of meeting all statutory requirements in safeguarding training, while keeping school staff interested and engaged in a positive learning environment. It is delivered in an engaging manner by a trainer who is accredited to Level 3: Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults.

“It is a pleasure to continue working with Dragonfly as we have been extremely pleased and impressed with all the training and trainers provided, and with the support and administrative back up. I am sure that our high level of satisfaction and appreciation will continue with our next session.”Headmaster , The British School of Gran Canaria
“Marcus was an engaging and knowledgeable speaker who made this difficult topic relevant and interesting. There was a good mix of information sharing and activity which kept his audience involved. He challenged them to think and to apply what they had learned. The supporting materials were both a good aide memoire and workbook. Safeguarding is always high on everyone’s agenda and Marcus impressed its relevance to all staff members, whatever their role. Thank you.”Deputy Headteacher , Bromley High School
“This was an excellent course - certainly the best S&CP course I have attended in the last nine years. Once again, we are very happy with the staff training provided by Dragonfly and I am sure we will continue to use you for our training needs in the future.”Director of Secondary , The British International School of Istanbul
