Use this scenario with your staff to test their:

  • Understanding of how to handle a safeguarding situation
  • Knowledge of your procedures and support strategies

There's:

  • 2 scenarios within each document - one for primary schools and the other for secondary schools. Delete the scenario that doesn't apply to your phase
  • 2 versions of each document - one with prompts for how staff should respond, and one without

If you send it to staff by email, make sure you use the version without the answers, and change the file name to avoid giving the answer away through staff seeing what safeguarding issue the scenario is about.

If you use it at a staff briefing, make sure you give staff the version without the highlighted answer text.
