Last August, Ofsted updated The Common Inspection Framework to reflect changes made to ‘keeping children safe in education’. Schools are now to be judged on the effectiveness of their safeguarding practices and will need to demonstrate that they are meeting their statutory responsibilities. However, to boil it down, perhaps rather flippantly, could Ofsted’s policies and procedures could be likened to having the emergency services on standby, but without the actual 999 end-service? Our Creative Director wonders if the changes truly consider the children who actually need safeguarding?
