What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children's health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
  • Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18. 

What is Child Protection?

Child Protection is part of Safeguarding and promoting welfare. It refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.

Staff Understanding of Safeguarding and Child Protection

All staff must read Part One of the document 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' issued by the Department for Education, and all staff receive a minimum of one safeguarding and child protection training session annually.

Additionally, there is a rolling programme of professional development for child-facing staff to address safeguarding themes throughout the academic year.
