Event Details

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) role is vital to keeping children safe. This course ensures those new to that role, or the Deputy DSL role, have the knowledge and skills necessary to take on these responsibilities with confidence.


The course covers the key aspects of legislation and national guidance that define the responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead, including Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015), Keeping Children Safe in Education (2018) and Ofsted’s Inspecting Safeguarding in Early Years, Education and Skills Settings (2016).

This course is ideal for those who are new to the Designated Safeguarding Lead role, or deputy, and those who support Designated Safeguarding Leads, such as headteachers and principals. Governors with responsibility for safeguarding within their setting would also benefit from the greater knowledge this course provides.

This course covers the following areas;

  • Key legislation and statutory guidance relating to safeguarding in schools
  • Types of abuse that may be encountered, and their signs, including CSE, forced marriage, female genital mutilation, radicalisation and ‘county lines’.
  • The various reporting routes and support available for dealing with different types of abuse.
  • The learning from Serious Case Reviews that is particularly relevant to schools and colleges
  • Safeguarding policies and procedures
  • Dealing with ‘peer on peer’ abuse, and the implications of recent guidance
  • The key changes in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education – September 2018’.
  • Information sharing, consent, and the implications of GDPR
  • Local referral processes and making referrals
  • Early help
  • An overview of multi-agency child protection procedures
  • Development requirements and opportunities for Designated Safeguarding Leads
  • Development requirements and opportunities for other school staff
  • Record keeping, retention and transfer

Within the course, each element is related directly to the role and responsibilities of the Designated Safeguarding Lead, as set out in Annex B of ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education – September 2018’.
The course is delivered within four modules. The content of each module is as follows:

Module 1 – Legislation and Recognising Abuse
There are two elements to this module. Firstly, we will look at the legislation and statutory guidance relating specifically to the role of DSL, and to safeguarding and child protection more broadly. Secondly, we will ensure delegates understand the different forms of abuse that may be encountered, and their possible signs and causes. This will include the broader risks that children and young people now face, such as radicalisation, ‘honour’ based violence and ‘peer on peer’ abuse.

Module 2- Safeguarding Processes and Procedures
The aim of this module is to look at processes and procedures used within safeguarding and child protection, both within the DSL’s own setting, and within the wider child protection and early help arrangements.

Module 3- The Role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead
The aim of this module is to look at the role and responsibilities of the DSL within their setting, including how safeguarding arrangements are assessed. This module includes the procedures for dealing with allegations against staff.

Module 4 – Practical Application
The aim of this module is to build understanding of reporting procedures, decision making, record keeping, consent and confidentiality. This is done using scenario based exercises and learning from serious case reviews.
