The Pupil Safeguarding Review

Edurio and The Key are launching England’s largest safeguarding review. If you would like to better understand the impact of your school and trust’s safeguarding efforts, participating in The Edurio Safeguarding Survey can provide the feedback you need.

✅ Evaluate your trust's safeguarding strategy at scale
Uncover aspects of safeguarding not covered by policy audits and incident trackers
Gain practical ideas to improve safeguarding across your schools
Contribute to national research that guides policy and practice

The new Edurio pupil safeguarding diagnostic, designed with trust safeguarding experts, will provide insights on factors contributing to a safe environment, the level of safety felt in various school settings and pupils' understanding of what to do if they feel unsafe.

Edurio helps over 2,000 schools in England carry out regular pupil, parent, and staff surveys in order to build organisations where people thrive.

Research topics

The survey is designed by Edurio in partnership with a group of experts ranging from trust safeguarding leads, to safeguarding audit specialists and research experts. The survey instrument is based on practitioner interviews and validated with pupils.

Main areas of the Edurio Safeguarding Review survey

Access to help
Pupils’ level of comfort with seeking help if there is an issue, whether they know how to seek help, and any barriers there may be to doing so.

Feelings of safety
How safe pupils feel in different environments and situations, including physical spaces within and outside of school, and different relationships and interactions.

Levels of understanding
How tolerant pupils feel their school is towards different groups, topics and issues, and whether there is anything they would like to learn more about.

Access to knowledge
Whether pupils know what’s acceptable in relationships of different sorts, and how well this is supported by the curriculum in their school.

Cost of participation

We have designed the project so that any school can take part at no cost and get access to the insights that can help guide your work. There are two ways of participating in the research:

Free Safeguarding
Paid safeguarding
