Inspection, SIMS and the Single Central Record

October 2018

Created in partnership with ASCL Premier Partner Capita SIMS

This guidance is relevant to school and college leaders in England, as well as staff with a responsibility for
maintaining the Single Central Record (SCR).

The inspection of safeguarding is one of the most significant elements of a school inspection. Consequently, even an otherwise good or outstanding school can be downgraded to inadequate overall if safeguarding is not judged to be effective. A school’s SCR is a key part of the evidence inspectors consider when inspecting safeguarding.
