Every school and college in England must have a Designated Safeguarding Lead. All staff, volunteers and those working on behalf of the school should be aware of who this is, understand the role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead and know how their role works alongside the DSL to keep children safe. In this course we will explore this important role in more detail, look at how the DSL works to keep children safe, what their responsibilities are and how they work with other agencies. We will also look at the safeguarding responsibilities of every member of staff so that you can feel confident in what to do if you are concerned about a child.
