New teachers need safeguarding support

Following inspections of initial teacher education, Ofsted has flagged that trainees' understanding of safeguarding needs improvement.  It found trainee teachers:

  • Didn't understand what safeguarding was, or their responsibilities
  • Weren't provided with the documents they needed
  • Lacked knowledge of the Prevent duty and teaching British values
