Deferment of proposal to extend audit assistance survey programme in schools
11 Jan 2021
Schools representatives have requested that, given the pressures on schools’ staffing resources at the current time, the extension of the audit assistance survey programme in schools requiring compliance documents to be submitted to Schools Services be deferred to later in the year.
The original EGFL roll-out communication was prepared before the current lockdown was announced. A new timetable for implementation will be put forward in due course.
Schools are reminded that it is equally important during lockdown to ensure all compliance activities and actions take place to continue to ensure a safe learning environment for pupils and staff.
The portal remains available for schools to use during this time where helpful in managing these documents and activities.
