Cancellation of all training by CPSLO Service as a response to COVID-19

18th March 2020

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and advice from government regarding large groups of individuals and social distancing, we have received direction from the senior leadership team that our safeguarding children training should be cancelled for the foreseeable future. We are also postponing training at HDC Robertson House Stevenage for the foreseeable future.

Apologies, for any inconvenience that this will cause you and your school staff. The situation regarding COVID-19 changes daily and once the situation becomes clearer, I will be in touch with plans for future training.

In the meantime, if you have concerns regarding your schools safeguarding children training falling out of the 3-year timescale I would be happy to speak to you about this and we have recorded this on our data base if we receive any queries from your regulating body.

The Secretary of State has allowed Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector to temporarily suspend all routine inspections of schools, further education, early years and social care providers. Please view further information here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/ofsted-suspends-all-routine-inspections
