Annual Safeguarding Audit
This is a reminder that if you have not already returned your Annual Safeguarding Audit it is due to be returned by: Friday 28th April 2017.
This year the audit is confidence based. The purpose is to have true and honest reflections from both managers and staff on their knowledge of safeguarding. This will enable the Early Years and Childcare Service to update our information and plan training to ensure we are meeting the needs of the early years and childcare workforce.
The staff section of the audit can be printed off and given to each member of staff to complete. The results should then be collated and sent back. An alternative suggestion is that it is completed as a staff team in a staff meeting. The most important factor is that you and your practitioners are honest and it is ok to say you are not confident.
If you have any queries regarding the Safeguarding Audit please contact your Early Years and Childcare Advisor.
The Safeguarding Audit is for the private and voluntary sector which includes childminders . School managed providers will complete the Babcock Safeguarding Audit
