Pupil Safeguarding & Support Team

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

Safeguarding means:

a) protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
b) preventing harm to children’s health or development
c) ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
d) taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.
