Whether it be starting the evaluation process from the beginning, or modifying what is in existence already, we can help. It is important to validate judgments and within our organisation we have consultants who are skilled at this.

Safeguarding Reviews

Although safeguard monitoring was a requirement in Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) 2016 there was even more focus in the September 2018 update. “All school and college staff have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn”. With our safeguarding review, The Federation of Independent Schools uses a comprehensive audit tool and provides an overview of safeguarding within your organisation, whilst confirming areas you may wish to focus upon to improve.
