2017_AEGIS_Reinspection_Report

RECOMMENDATIONS & CONCLUSION Recommendations to be implemented by September 2017 are already in progress by the Director of Safeguarding. Standards 1.1 – 1.21 Consider recording the date that Homestays complete the online safeguarding training provided by the Guardianship Organisation onto the training records. Implement the health and safety checks recently introduced to record suitable gas checks, insurance renewals as well as appropriate carbon monoxide and smoke detectors for Homestays. Standards 2.1 – 2.14 Introduce a notice period for the termination of the Homestay contract Standards 5.1 – 5.3 Obtain and record full details of student’s passport and Visa/BRP details, in order to fully meet the requirements of 5.1 b and c. Conclusion Bright World is a highly efficient Guardianship Organisation that provides a quality service for the large number of students that they care for. Children’s safety and welfare is at the heart of the service that they provide, and systems to help ensure that students are kept safe whilst their care are robust overall, with the recording of checks on health and safety elements within the Homestays being suitably strengthened. Bright World’s levels of communication with schools and the quality of Homestay accommodation were both noted as significant strengths by the Supporting Inspector. The Lead Inspector has made some recommendations in order to fully meet the AEGIS requirements, however, practice at Bright World is strong overall and the Lead Inspector would therefore fully recommend that Bright World are re-accredited. Re-accreditation was confirmed by the AEGIS Board of Trustees on the 29th March 2017, on the understanding that the recommendations are completed by the given dates. The next re-accreditation inspection will be due in March 2021. This document contains a summary of the 18-page report.
