Clifton College receives positive inspection report - 08 April 2016

An inspection into safeguarding at Clifton College has found that the College has met all regulations and standards required.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) said that the School had made “excellent progress in establishing first-class procedures and practices and raising the awareness of all staff and pupils to the importance of safeguarding”.

The spot inspection was carried out in February and followed the School’s implementation of an action plan after an initial inspection in July 2015.

ISI further stated that “a culture of safeguarding is now embedded in the ethos of the school and all are thoroughly aware of the school’s procedures and what they should do if they have any concerns.”

Dr Tim Greene, Head of College, said: “I am very pleased that the College has now been judged to meet fully all of the requirements set out by the inspectorate.

“Moreover, when interviewed by inspectors, boarders of all ages said they were happy, enjoyed school life, were well cared for and felt safe, with plenty of people to turn to if they needed support.

“The inspectorate recognised that we have undergone a thorough review of safeguarding since their previous visit in July 2015. We are committed to ensuring that safeguarding remains the highest priority at the College.”
