The Essex Safeguarding Children Board (ESCB) 2017-18 safeguarding audit for schools and colleges will ‘go live’ in October half-term.
The ESCB has a statutory responsibility to assess how effectively its partners are fulfilling their safeguarding obligations and the audit supports this work.
The audit will be sent out via Headteacher Associations. Schools will then have until 31st May 2018 to complete and return it to the ESCB.
The process for completing the audit has changed this year. It was previously carried out online but the document will now be in Excel format.
Updated information on the 2017-18 Audit has been sent out to schools and colleges across Essex and is also available to view on our dedicated webpage or via Essex Schools Infolink.
