Safeguarding Children

Safeguarding Children in Education - Audit

Under S.175 Education Act 2002 Governing Bodies are required to monitor and report annually to the Local Authority on their safeguarding provision.

The audit tool Microsoft Word 134kB will help the Head Teacher / Child Protection Liaison Officer to provide a report to the Governing Body on safeguarding practice. This will enable the Governing Body to monitor compliance with the requirements of S.175 or S.157 Education Act 2002 and associated guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (2014).

This academic year (2014/15) the audit is for internal use only, and to support the Governing Body to remedy any identified weaknesses or deficiencies without delay.

The next audit request will be made by the LSCB Education sub-group in May 2015 and this page will be updated at that time.
