Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Partnership

Schools Safeguarding Assurance

We are seeking assurance from you that your safeguarding responsibilities, as set out under sections 157 and 175 of the Education Act 2004, are being met.

The LSCP is therefore seeking assurance of the safeguarding practice in your education setting.

To provide this assurance, you can utilise any of the following methods:

  • complete the Lincolnshire County Council Safeguarding in Schools self- assessment audit tool, which will be sent out to you
  • complete your own trust's safeguarding audit which should be available to view on request
  • utilise other proof that safeguarding is monitored regularly and that effectiveness is evaluated, evidence of which should be available on request
  • utilise the LSCP minimum standards safeguarding checklist

The assurance must be provided from your Governing Body or Board of Trustees and by completing the safeguarding assurance form:

Submit your safeguarding assurance

Completed audits should not be sent with the assurance.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 27 November 2020.

If you cannot assure the LSCP, please let us know your intended action plan and this will be referred to the Local Authority Education Team. Our email is: [email protected]
