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.

As a school we are here to support children and their families. Should your family be faced with any challenges, we would encourage you to approach the school, as we would like to support you, if possible.

Please be aware that the school can support with food vouchers, access to second hand uniform or should you need help applying for Free School meals.

We can also offer guidance with mental health support, bereavement and domestic abuse signposting. 

Prevent Strategy

From 1st July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism".

This duty is known as the Prevent Duty.  It applies to a wide range of public-facing bodies, including all primary and secondary schools.

Schools can build pupils' resilience to radicalisation by providing a safe environment for debating controversial issues and helping children to understand how they can influence and participate in decision making.  Schools are already expected to promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils and, within this, fundamental British values.
