My name is Andrea Glynn and I founded Schools Safeguarding following a 20 year career in pastoral and safeguarding roles in education. My aim is to support educational professionals to keep children as safe and as happy as they can be. I am the lead consultant and director of Schools Safeguarding Ltd and I am passionate about providing practical, realistic and relevant (and dare I say fun?!) training covering all aspects of Safeguarding and Child Protection in schools, including Designated Safeguarding Leads, Safer Recruitment, Supervision and the Governance and Management of Safeguarding. I also support schools with Safeguarding Compliancy Audits, Supervision, Risk Assessments, Referrals, Investigations and Assessments, as well as providing ongoing advice, guidance and resources to make safeguarding in schools as stress-free as possible.
I am an enthusiastic and optimistic person – I try to find some joy in every day, which I understand can be difficult sometimes in the line of work we’re in! I live with my partner and two dogs and enjoy walking, spending time with friends, eating out, going to the theatre and having days out. I am also an avid reader and will share what I am reading on my emails – please let me know of any good reads!
I am so lucky to have a wonderful team working with me; all highly skilled and experienced practitioners who bring something unique to the Schools Safeguarding Team. Please feel free to contact any of us regarding any aspect of safeguarding in your setting and we will be delighted to assist in whatever way we can.
