Helping to achieve best practice in safeguarding children within Derbyshire, ensuring that every Derbyshire learner attends a 'Good' or 'Outstanding' Ofsted rated school.
Safeguarding audit for 2019 to 2020
There is an expectation that schools, colleges and educational settings in Derbyshire complete this audit.
This audit is updated annually to reflect the latest DfE Guidance Keeping Children Safe In Education, Ofsted inspection performance indicators, and includes specific safeguarding issues and local targets aimed to improve safeguarding in schools and education settings in Derbyshire.
Together with an action plan, the audit forms the framework for safeguarding and child protection in your school or setting.
Once ratified by your governors, we recommend you hold a paper version within your safeguarding portfolio for reference and to present for inspection.
Please remember to send a copy of your audit to Performance, Quality and Partnerships (details on the audit) so we can feed back the findings and the excellent work to the Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (DDSCP) in an annual report.
