Thank you very much for your quality assurance visit last week. It was highly constructive from our point of view and your findings as reported on the day have given us a focus for future improvements.

Designated Safeguarding Lead of Secondary School

Thank you for a very interesting session. I feel this has helped the support staff – and me – in understanding the schools initial involvement and the various procedures creating the ‘bigger picture’ of what happens once a concern about a child has been raised. You have a way of holding an audience’s attention and creating interest and enthusiasm for all.

Governor of Swindon Primary School

Sarah worked with our school carrying out an audit of safeguarding and delivering training to staff. She was very down to earth but thorough and gave us clear actions to follow. She is also approachable and willing to offer support to improve. A really useful day!
