The Singleton report

Keeping our school safe

Sir Roger Singleton, as Chair of the Independent Safeguarding Authority, has led a review of safeguarding arrangements in independent schools, non-maintained special schools and all boarding schools in England.

The purpose of the review was to examine the practical operation of the current statutory and non-statutory safeguarding arrangements that apply to these schools, and to make any recommendations where practice could usefully be improved. The Government has accepted all Sir Roger Singleton's recommendations and published a full response on 6 May 2009 setting out implementation plans.
