- everyone understands their roles and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding
- every trainee studies the online Safeguarding and E-safety blended learning sessions
- trainees attend all in-school safeguarding training
- we work with school partners to prevent the employment/deployment of unsuitable individuals
- robust safeguarding arrangements and procedures are in operation.
Tes Institute’s Safeguarding Policy will be reviewed as a minimum annually or more frequently when there are changes in legislation and/or government guidance.
