Annual safeguarding audit

In the first year of your subscription the audit will take place onsite at your school (if possible).

In subsequent years the audit may be carried out on site or virtually using video services such as Zoom or Teams. 

In addition to reviewing your policies and processes such as Single Central Record, Child Protection Files, site security, Safer Recruitment and so on, the audit may also involve interviewing not only the Designated Safeguarding Lead(s) but also other school leaders and relevant stakeholders including children. The purpose of the audit will be to examine the quality and efficacy of your safeguarding arrangements and make recommendations for improvements where appropriate. This part of the audit will last up to one day on site.

Unlimited Advisory service

Our Safeguarding experts are available during working hours to advise by email or telephone on any Safeguarding matter that arises, including initial response to a critical incident. 

Access out of hours is also available for emergencies. Where it is necessary to carry out an investigation, our Safeguarding consultants will assist your school to manage the investigation by briefing and assisting your internal, appointed investigator. Where the school wishes to appoint an independent investigator, our consultants are able to carry out this service at a discounted rate.
