Safeguarding — dates for the diary
The Refresher Course for Creating Safer Space must be done this year by anyone who was trained five years ago and is continuing in their role. Keith Underhill will be delivering this training, on
29th March at All Saints Abingdon 4th May at Wantage
and 27th June at Wallingford.
These will be large-group sessions and we hope most of those needing the training will be able to attend on one of these dates.
For those who have done no Safeguarding training, Keith will also be providing the foundation module of Creating Safer Space training The dates for these sessions are to be decided, but if you need the training, or are appointing new postholders who will need it, please let Keith know.
