AQA Safeguarding Declaration

AQA’s requirement for a safeguarding declaration

We have been made aware of concern about AQA’s requirement for a safeguarding declaration in relation to performing arts examinations, which could be interpreted to place additional requirements on schools in respect of their safeguarding policies and procedures. AQA have confirmed that the declaration, which relates to the suitability of performances and refers to AQA introducing “additional safeguards”, will be met by schools who are compliant with regulations and statutory guidance relevant to safeguarding. Its purpose is to remind schools to apply their normal safeguarding policies and procedures. Schools with any concerns about the declaration can contact legal@isc.co.uk.
