Why you should attend:

Following the success of last year’s event, BSA’s 3rd Annual Safeguarding Conference is an ideal opportunity to get up to date with recent changes in legislation and best practice guidance from experts in a range of issues concerned with safeguarding pupils in our schools and promoting their welfare.  

Each session will look at contemporary issues, including mental health, online safety, inspection and responding to survivors of abuse, and will investigate each from a general perspective, but also with a particular focus on boarding,  The day also offers an excellent chance to network with colleagues with similar responsibilities in other boarding schools.
