Welfare Audit Group and Advisory Group
The school has a welfare audit group which helps to ensure that current best practices, policies and procedures in health and safety are maintained. The group also oversees the regulations regarding all safeguarding matters, as required by the local authority's safeguarding board. Each year the group carries out a completely independent audit and reports its findings to the school's management team. The Advisory Group also act as 'critical friends' to the school's management team. We are grateful to these professionals for their expertise and continued support.
