Updated to show information for academic year 2017/2018

In September 2011 Ofsted published a guide, Safeguarding in Schools: Best Practice that illustrates and evaluates the features of best practice in safeguarding, based on inspection evidence from the 19% of all maintained primary, secondary and special schools, residential special schools and pupil referral units inspected between September 2009 and July 2010 where safeguarding had been judged outstanding. It also draws on a more detailed analysis and evaluation of safeguarding practice in a small sample of outstanding schools visited by Inspectors. We have used this best practice guide to model our safeguarding provision and procedures around the central core factors identified by Ofsted in school where the safeguarding as judged as outstanding.

  • high quality leadership and management where safeguarding was seen as a priority
  • stringent vetting procedures
  • rigorous safeguarding procedures and policies
  • easily accessible child protection arrangements
  • a high priority given to training that goes beyond the basic
  • robust arrangements for site security
  • a flexible, relevant and engaging curriculum that is used to promote safeguarding.
