SchoolPoint 365:

SchoolPoint shows:

  • Your safeguarding children team details & your individual or setting 'training ID'
  • The age range of your pupils & type of educational setting
  • Contact details for your Safeguarding Children Advisor, Education

We will use this information to:

  • Support practitioner training pathways
  • Help education settings to fulfil their responsibility to inform the Local Authority about their safeguarding arrangements
