An externally derived and bespoke safeguarding audit or review can provide your school with baseline measures and related recommendations for developing and improving standards going forward. Accreditation bodies integrate safeguarding assessment as only part of their comprehensive inspection processes.

Alternatively schools can undertake an internal review to yield some baseline data for benchmarking future progress.

Any review should examine efficacy linked to:

  • The ITFCP recommendations as a minimum standard;
  • A safeguarding ‘whole school community’ framework that is fit for purpose;
  • Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) or Child Protection Officers (CPOs) sufficiently trained and in adequate numbers for organizational size;
  • Appropriate levels of safeguarding awareness and training for all those within the ‘school community’.
