Course Outline: Safeguarding Children with Disabilities Course

Growing numbers of children and young people with special educational needs are now attending mainstream education settings. So it’s vital that anyone working in these settings is aware of their responsibility for safeguarding disabled children. 

Caredemy’s Safeguarding Children with Disabilities training course is the ideal way for staff and volunteers to undertake safeguarding training online. This child safeguarding online course will explain why children with disabilities are at greater risk of abuse, as well as the warning signs to be aware of and how staff should report their safeguarding concerns.

What is Safeguarding Children with Disabilities?

School or college should be a safe space for all children and young children, where they can feel secure and safe from harm. But adults working in educational settings need to be aware that children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) may have additional needs which could put them at greater risk of abuse or neglect. 

This could be because they don’t understand that what is happening is a form of abuse or because they have additional communication needs which make it difficult for them to let others know if something is wrong.

All educational settings need to ensure that staff and volunteers receive regular and appropriate safeguarding training as part of their safeguarding policy. This will help them to recognise the early signs of abuse or neglect and take appropriate action.

Who is the Safeguarding Children with Disabilities course suitable for?

All staff and volunteers who have contact with children or young people in an educational setting are required by law to receive child safeguarding training. This training needs to include the relevant safeguarding policies, guidance and legislation. Anyone whose role involves contact with children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities should receive specific training as part of their responsibility for safeguarding. 

The Safeguarding Children with Disabilities course syllabus is appropriate for staff and volunteers in early years and nursery settings as well as those working in primary and secondary schools. It is also a suitable training course for governors and staff on governing bodies. 

This online training course is a Level 1 introductory safeguarding course, designed to be suitable for learners at all levels. However any staff who have not already received any general child safeguarding training should first take our Safeguarding Children in Education course

The course can be included as part of your induction training syllabus for new staff and is also suitable for use as refresher training for child safeguarding.

What does the course cover?

This online training course covers the requirements for safeguarding children and young people with disabilities in educational settings. 

The course explains the reasons why children with SEND may be more vulnerable to abuse, potential barriers to communication and how signs of abuse may be misunderstood. You will also learn the signs of abuse, how to report suspected abuse and how to respond to concerns about abuse. The course also sets out how agencies and professionals can work together in safeguarding disabled children.

The Safeguarding Children with Disabilities course has been assessed and accredited for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). It will take around one hour to complete and you will receive one CPD point upon completion.
