Our next webinar: Effective safeguarding record keeping

Monday 11 December 2017 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm 

Keeping children safe is the single most important priority for any childcare practitioner. All too often good practice is not supported by record keeping that demonstrates children are kept safe at all times. This essential webinar will explain why record keeping is an essential part of safeguarding practice, will outline principles of good recording and consider the sensitive issue of access to records. Delivered by Lisa Graham, Lead Safeguarding Adviser and Michael Freeston, Director of Quality Improvement, this session will be invaluable to all childcare providers.
