The Safeguarding Children Audit Tool for Schools and Colleges has been developed by the DSCB Education Hub to support education establishments to review their safeguarding arrangements and planning. It will also help schools provide evidence of their safeguarding activities.
The Education Hub have also developed a Derby Schools Safeguarding Handbook which draws together key national and local safeguarding information, resources and support options for Derby education providers. This will enable Derby schools to ensure they are up-to-date and compliant with safeguarding issues and processes. The handbook reflects the sections within the Safeguarding Children Audit Tool for Schools and Colleges and as such will support schools in their annual review.
The Safeguarding Children Audit Tool for Schools has been reviewed and updated to incorporate requirements from Keeping Children Safe in Education (2016), Ofsted and local safeguarding arrangements.
