With schools due to re-open fully from March 8, safeguarding issues will be foremost in our minds and our preparations must begin now. Expert Elizabeth Rose advises on what our priorities and approaches should look like

We know from our experience last September that a child’s transition back into school following an extended period of time learning at home is not always easy.

Once again, children will have had varied experiences during the latest lockdown and, sadly, we know that many will have experienced harm or abuse. Children who have been learning on-site might also find the transition back to “normal” difficult.

There are lots of things that we can do to support and safeguard our young people and the next few days are a real opportunity to make sure that you can hit the ground running when all children are welcomed back from March 8.
