The benchmark for outstanding practice

The Safeguarding Alliance drives a controlled, consistent standard for duty of care throughout the Independent Schools Network globally

The Safeguarding Alliance provides a comprehensive and collaborative membership offer to organisations working with children and young people. We recognise that protecting the health, well-being and human rights of individuals to allow them to live free from abuse, harm and neglect, is paramount.

We also know that organisations need support to understand and manage risks and be proactive in delivering preventative measures. The Safeguarding Alliance assesses and gauges against globally recognised standards, to protect and support the child, the employees and the organisation.

“Robust and regular safeguarding training is vital to ensuring that the climate, safety and well-being of my schools is exceptional. The use of external providers to provide that specialist know how but also to provide that latest professional advice makes the training that much clearer for my staff and means that my students are better looked after. This training is not only for teaching staff but also for governors, associate staff, students and parents/carers which means that all parts of our school community develop that ethos of safeguarding.”

Mr. Hehir – Executive Head BMAT
