Code: EX107 Exclusions

This training session equips governors to be able to sit on a governors' Disciplinary Committee panel which is a statutory requirement in the case of certain types of school exclusion, including any permanent exclusion. We recommend that panel members are re-trained every 2 years. Outcomes Governors will: • gain an understanding of and insight into the exclusion process (including the statutory procedures that a governing board must follow when reviewing a headteacher's decision to exclude a child) and the processes followed by the Independent Review Panel • receive an update on exclusion legislation and guidance • understand the different responsibilities of the headteacher, governing board and Local Authority in the exclusion process. Outline Excluding a pupil involves a statutory process that governors should ensure they perform legally and effectively. There will be a mixture of tutor input, group activity/discussion and an opportunity to ask questions. Tutor Malcolm Leigh, Governance

Code: 19DMS/014A SIMS Attendance Reporting

This course is designed to ensure schools make the most of the valuable management information that has been collected as part of routine attendance registration. Attendance and punctuality is now part of the new Ofsted inspection framework, under the behaviour and safety key judgements. This course will enable participants to produce key attendance information for vulnerable groups as well as being able to track pupils with low attendance and persistent absentees. This information can be used to monitor and ultimately improve pupil achievement, based on the reasonable assumption that if a pupil is not attending school, they will be at a considerable disadvantage.

Code: 19SBM/001A Single Central Record training (LIMITED SPACES)

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people is one of the most important aspects of schools' work. One element of this is to carry out and record robust recruitment checks. Ofsted inspectors scrutinise the school's Single Central Record (SCR) during inspections. They are likely to be interested both in whether it is compliant with the requirements outlined in Keeping Children Safe in Education, and in the school's culture and approach to maintaining it. Changing requirements over time often lead to questions about how best to maintain the SCR, and about compliance and best practice. This half-day course will remind delegates of the importance of meeting the statutory requirements. It will allow delegates to explore what constitutes an effective SCR. The session is for anyone with responsibility for establishing, updating or maintaining the school's SCR. The training will comprise presentation, discussion and practical activity.

Code: 19PSE/001A Workshop to Raise Awareness of PREVENT (WRAP): 4:00-5:30pm (LIMITED SPACES)

The Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) is the Home Office's official training package on anti-radicalisation. The DfE expect all schools to have accessed WRAP training. The minimum legal requirement is that all schools should have at least one member of staff, usually a DSP, who has attended the official WRAP training. (DfE 'Prevent' Guidance, 2015 - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/protecting-children-from-radicalisation-the-prevent-duty). However, Ofsted inspectors increasingly expect that schools will have exceeded the minimum requirement. HCC and Herts for Learning recommend that schools ensure that at all times there will be a member of staff on school premises who has attended WRAP. Sessions are a maximum of 1.5 hours. They are appropriate for all staff involved in educational contexts including secondary schools, primary schools, early years settings and childcare providers. The session will deliver a full WRAP training package, followed by an additional briefing on the DfE guidelines and Ofsted expectations.
