Section 11 Audit

What is a Section 11 audit tool?

 

Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 places a duty on all organisations who work with children and young people, to ensure that they have arrangements in place that reflect the importance of safeguarding.

You should complete this audit tool if your organisation works with children and young people or if your organisation comes into contact with them as part of your wider activities. The degree of compliance required within each standard will depend on the role and function of your individual agencies.

Guidance notes for “what is a Section 11 audit tool”

This audit tool has been developed to make it easy for you to assess whether your organisation has the correct procedures/ processes in place and where you need to improve your safeguarding arrangements, to ensure the work that you undertake with children and young people up to the age of 18 is:

  • As safe as possible
  • Compliant with legislation.

You should complete this audit tool if your organisation works with children and young people or if your organisation comes into contact with them as part of your wider activities. The degree of compliance required within each standard will depend on the role and function of your individual agencies. The Leeds Safeguarding Children Board’s Section 11 audit tool sets a minimum level of safeguarding standards an organisation needs to have in place to work safely, and should complement and underpin, rather than replace, other standards or procedures. The headings or the standards within the assessment are taken from the ‘Statutory guidance on making arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children under section 11 of The Children Act 2004’.
