Education safeguarding

We can help education professional across Medway access necessary information, policies and procedures relating to your setting.

We have a number of documents which will be of use but schools are reminded to regularly access the School's Forum and also read the School's Information Bulletin for general updates and other school information will be shared.

The resources below are specifically relevant for shools, but professionals can and should access other parts of our site for general safeguarding issues.

Education Safeguarding Audit

We have the responsibility for collecting annual education safeguarding audits. 

We use these for quality assurance exercises to ensure Medway Schools and Education Establishments meet their safeguarding responsibilities. These audits can help us identify areas for support across school settings. 

Annual audits along with the minutes of the Governing Body meeting where the audit is presented should be submitted to mscpschools@medway.gov.uk.

A new audit template was published in September 2019.
