Unit researchers Dr Mary Baginsky and Dr Carl Purcell presented the findings from an ESRC-funded research project that examined the engagement of English schools in multi-agency working for the protection and safeguarding of children. The webinar was attended by 45 people representing schools, local authorities, Ofsted and other research institutions. 

I found the feedback session today a breath of fresh air, and left me with hope for safeguarding in schools in the future.
