We are seeking an experienced safeguarding professional for this newly created role of Safeguarding Co-ordinator.

The successful candidate will be working together with the individual schools’ Designated Safeguarding Leads and Heads to support and sustain a safe and child-centred culture across all Thomas’s London Day Schools.   The Safeguarding Co-ordinator will work closely with the pastoral teams in all schools, guiding and supporting their safeguarding and welfare work, leading on cross school safeguarding training and initiatives and helping to inform best practice in all areas of safeguarding.

As an experienced safeguarding professional the successful candidate will have a proven working knowledge of the current regulatory frameworks and have excellent communication and interpersonal skills to take a personal approach to matters which are often highly sensitive.
