    Action Plan

    Each section has a space for actions and a completion date. This is for education providers to use, providing you with an action plan to use to implement any necessary improvements as a consequence of completing the audit.

    RAG Ratings

    This is a visual guide to support the Action Plan, enabling education providers to see easily which safeguarding practice areas require improvement. Please note that these RAG assessments are for your self-assessment and to help the CSCP and it's partners prioritise any specific projects or training and development that may be required. RAG Criteria are below:

    Red: There is significant work to be done to be compliant in this area 

    Amber: There are some gaps which need to be addressed with actions added at the end of the section

    Green: The school self-assess as fully compliant with no further action needed

    Question Sets

    A number of questions have changed from last year with some requiring narrative and others requiring a number or RAG rating. Each of the sections consist with an area to note any actions that are required and for you to provide an overall RAG rating of your provision for that section using the drop-down arrow. Unless stated otherwise the data, information and RAG assessments should relate to the period 1st September 2022 to 31st August 2023. Please note that these RAG assessments are for you, and also to help the CSCP and its partners prioritise any specific projects or training and development that may be required.
