ADDENDUM TO ETI REPORT

FURTHER ADDENDUM TO THE REPORT ON THE INSPECTION OF DE

LA SALLE COLLEGE, NOVEMBER 2016 SAFEGUARDING

The Education and Training Inspectorate was commissioned by the

Department of Education to undertake a second follow-up inspection of the

arrangements for child protection/safeguarding in De La Salle College,

Belfast; this inspection took place on 19 May 2017. The purpose of the

visit was to ensure that the areas for improvement identified during the

original inspection and the subsequent follow up inspection were being

addressed.


On the basis of the evidence available, the revised arrangements now

reflect broadly the guidance issued by the Department of Education.

Appropriate arrangements have been put in place for maintaining and

recording complaints and disclosures and for raising staff awareness of

effective safeguarding practices. It will be important that the school:

maintains the good work and stability of the recently re-constituted child

protection team; continues to build the capacity of all staff in matters

relating to child protection/safeguarding; and, ensures systematic

monitoring and evaluation of the outworking of all policies and practices

relating to child protection/safeguarding. Work has been undertaken on

the development of a “Promoting a Dignified Workplace” policy and an

associated code of conduct for staff; this policy should be implemented

as quickly as possible.

 

During the interim period, the school reported that it had received extensive support from the

Council for Catholic Maintained Schools.
