Course Outline

Why should you audit your current safeguarding arrangements? During the webinar, we’ll be looking into the critical importance of auditing your current safeguarding arrangements. Auditing ensures that your school/s are meeting legal requirements and providing a safe environment for all individuals involved. By auditing, you can identify strengths, weaknesses, areas of good practice, and potential areas of development within your safeguarding procedures. We will demonstrate best practices based on the latest guidelines from KCSIE 2023 (Keeping Children Safe in Education), international case study scenarios and provide insights into what we touch upon at Veema during a safeguarding audit.
