Investors in Families seminar in Cardiff on 16th November 2016

 


The seminar in Cardiff attracted 50 delegates from across Wales, pictured with the IIF certificates and plaques for schools gaining the quality mark in the last six months.

The key focus was on “Keeping learners safe” and co-incided with Child Protection Week.

Sue Davies (IIF) and Christine Jenkins (Bryntirion Comprehensive School) set out the guidance and how a primary and secondary school had implemented the policy.
