Safeguarding Audit and Reporting Software

Safeguarding Audit System

A sector-leading flexible Online Audit System

Having worked with the safeguarding sector since 2007, Phew understands the specific needs and challenges faced by Children and Adult Boards or Partnerships, as well as Multi-Academy Trusts, Children’s Services, and Sports Associations.

Pooling our knowledge gained through our close client relationships, we have developed a credible and time-saving integrated Audit System suitable for any type of local or regional safeguarding audit, including Sections 11 and 175.

National Safeguarding Audit Survey

Phew conducted a nationwide survey on children’s safeguarding auditing, inviting children and joint safeguarding partnerships to provide their insights. The survey delved into key aspects, including the frequency of Section 11, Section 157/175, and Case Audits, the tools used for distribution and analysis, and the primary challenges faced.

Staffordshire Families and Communities

The Audit System has helped our organisation improve best practice. It’s been great to see the school action plans. The schools love being able to upload a plan and add evidence too. Using an electronic audit platform means we can collect and collate intelligent information from all the schools easily.

Schools Improvement Liverpool

The email tracking has been very helpful for knowing when schools have received the information and being able to share that with them. Feedback from schools has generally been very positive. One head said how simple and useful the system was and how helpful it was being able to see where the gaps were in their compliance/documentation.

Dudley Safeguarding People Partnership

It was evident from the moment we engaged with Phew that as sector specialist, they understood the day-to-day challenges we face as a Partnership. With their approach of working with the sector to design systems, we quickly saw the potential of the Audit system for both our stakeholder and internal team.

Merton Safeguarding Children Partnership

Using the Phew Audit System has reduced the resources required, both to deliver the audit by the business support team and to contribute to the audit by partner agencies, which is much appreciated by everyone where resources are limited and often stretched.
