Inspecting safeguarding in early years, education and skills settings

Guidance for Ofsted inspectors to use when inspecting safeguarding under the education inspection framework.



The guidance sets out what inspectors must consider when inspecting safeguarding. It outlines the evidence that inspectors will look for during inspections and sets out the judgements they will make.

It needs to be read alongside the education inspection framework (EIF) guidance.
