Under the new Common Inspection Framework, a judgement on Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare will be included for the first time from September 2015. As part of reaching this judgement, inspectors will look at the extent to which schools help and protect pupils so that they are kept safe, whilst also successfully supporting pupils to gain skills of their own to be able to make informed choices and to reach their potential

Schools should be safe spaces in which children and young people can understand, ‘discuss and debate sensitive in a considered way, showing respect for others’ ideas and points of view.’ (Ofsted 2015)

The importance of wellbeing for school staff, pupils and the community is hugely significant and impacts upon performance, safeguarding, outcomes and general life satisfaction – this is re-affirmed by the new OfSTED judgement on personal development, welfare and behaviour.

Under the new Common Inspection Framework, a judgement on Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare will be included for the first time from September 2015. As part of reaching this judgement, inspectors will look at the extent to which schools help and protect pupils so that they are kept safe ‘from relevant risks such as abuse, sexual exploitation and extremism, including when using the internet and social media’ whilst also successfully supporting pupils to gain skills of their own to be able to make informed choices and to reach their potential.

Inspectors also specifically make a written judgement under Leadership and Management in their report evaluating effectiveness of safeguarding children and learner’s arrangements including ‘making sure that safeguarding arrangements to protect children, young people and learners meet all statutory and other government requirements, promote their welfare and prevent radicalisation and extremism’.

Powerpoint attached from PSHE Association highlights how PSHE and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) are interlinked to the new framework.

The Stay Safe Partnership ethos and support packages are designed to support schools in achieving this objective. Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children’s Board are one of our many partners who offer specific training and support materials to keep schools in line with best practices.

For more information, see the full Common Inspection Framework guidance. This guidance should be read in conjunction with other relevant guidance, this includes Working Together to Safeguard Children, Keeping Children Safe in Education and Information Sharing: Her Majesty’s Government advice for professionals providing safeguarding services to children, young people, parents and carers.
