Our safeguarding FAQs are divided into three sections available via the navigation on the left:
- all schools and colleges
- learning and skills providers (education and training beyond age 16)
- Cafcass service areas.
Ofsted inspectors inspect to government legislation and statutory guidance. All Ofsted safeguarding guidance for inspectors is based on Safeguarding children and safer recruitment in education, but a number of other key documents are also referenced for your information.
- Safeguarding children and safer recruitment in education (DCSF, January 2007)
- Vetting and Barring Scheme guidance (October 2009)
- Briefing for section 5 inspectors on safeguarding children (September 2009) – this is in the zip file available from the supplementary guidance and resources page.
