I am pleased to write this endorsement of ECP, its work and its personnel. ECP has conducted 4 x one day audits at each of our Primary schools. The feedback from Headteachers has been uniformly positive, declaring the days to have been forensic in the detailed approach but also supportive in nature. The list of recommendations at the end of each report is most helpful and, as one colleague commented, “If only OFSTED could be like this!” Additionally one of the ECP team, Heather McDaid, conducted a three hour safeguarding session for 160 teaching and non-teaching staff in April which was universally acclaimed as knowledgeable and informative, the delivery described as ‘fantastic’.
