On the 17th February, we delivered our first ‘All company’ team development day of 2020. Held at our regular training venue Alec Reed Academy the day saw all 160 colleagues come together to consolidate their knowledge of all aspects of Safeguarding and Protecting children in our care.
At Hungry Caterpillars, we take our duty to protect children, families and staff very seriously and therefore the day covers everything our team need to know to ensure they deal with situations professionally. We covered an extensive list of topics throughout the day with all staff accessing all workshops and coming away with lots of new knowledge to support them in their day to day practice. There was a new topic introduced around the safeguarding of children with additional needs, a very important aspect for us as we make sure all of our SEN children are receiving the best care and that all of the team have the most up to date information.
Training was delivered by our director and Senior Leadership Team, supported by Michelle (Academy Gardens manager) and Joyce (West Twyford Manager). A massive thankyou to our managers who stepped up and delivered training with the SLT.
What the team got out of the day:
“ A lot of thought went into all sessions and all very different ” Faye, Academy Gardens
” It was really good, nicely delivered and good content” Paula, Academy Gardens
” Very detailed and easy to understand” Kevin, Hathaway
Our next Team Development Day is on Tuesday 26th May 2020.
