Hi  is this

I need some help please regarding safeguarding (DSL)

we have 2 designated Safeguarding leads, however at some point during the year we have both of the DSL away and that leaves no safeguarding staff, even tho all staff are level 3 and are all first aid trained. i am wondering for occasions like this is it possible if one of the staff has the mandatory safeguarding online e course? is this sufficient because i am aware that the nursery at all times during opening hours has to have a safeguarding lead at all times.

 

Any help/guidance will be much appreciated.

 

Thanking you all in advance.

Would it be out of the question to send another staff member for DSL training?

I think that is what I would aim for

Oh and welcome to the forum!:)

Hello Rukaiya, welcome to the wonderful world of FSF! Well done on making your first post. I would agree with sunnyday and suggest that you have more DSL trained staff. We try and have all our room leaders and anyone with positions of responsibility DSL trained. :)

I agree, I think as you know in advance that they are both away, you have a duty to be compliant with the DSL rules.

We are small - only 4 staff. We are all DSL trained.  One less thing to worry about when working out rotas.
