We recognise this is challenging times for you all in education and have extended the closure date until May 31st 2020.
Please could all settings ensure the audit is completed by this date. This is a statutory requirement under Section 157/175 of the Education Act that needs to be complied with. Please see attached guidance and FAQs here - Governors Annual Safeguarding Audit Virtual College.docx
Any setting that is struggling to do this, please contact Somerset Education Safeguarding team at SomersetEducationSafeguarding@somerset.gov.uk for the attention of Jane Weatherill and we will support where we can.
