Exploring Common Misconceptions about Ofsted's Role in Safeguarding
Sean Hartford, Ofsted National Director, has recently blogged on Ofsted's role in inspecting school safeguarding, exploring some common misconceptions.
He reminds us that Ofsted doesn't set the guidance themselves, their job is to inspect whether schools are following the DfE's statutory guidance.
