Accordingly, the Astrum Advisory Board monitor the standards within the School internally.
The School is externally inspected by the Department for Education under the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

Safeguarding 

Kensington Park School takes very seriously its duty towards all its students who have been entrusted to its care and seeks to provide a school environment where all children are safe, secure, valued, respected, and listened to. All staff have a full and active part to play in protecting students from harm. We believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child. 

We understand that our work in safeguarding and protecting children must always have regard for the national guidance issued by the Secretary of State and should be in line with local guidance and procedures. For those pupils who are boarding, Kensington Park School is aware of their increased vulnerability, living away from home.
