Safeguarding Evaluations

All agencies are keen to test out their own safeguarding practices, staff training and underpinning policies and procedures. 
Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 places duties on a range of organisations and individuals to ensure their functions, and any services that they contract out to others, are discharged having regard to the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Various other statutory duties apply to other specific organisations working with children and families, such as  maintained and independent schools.
