Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
- 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.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
If you have concerns about a child or would like to speak with someone about a safeguarding issue please come in to school and speak with one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads who are, Caroline McKay (Headteacher), Jo Hilton (Deputy Headteacher) and Sophie Tomlin (Assistant Headteacher).
Below are some links to external organisations which are able to provide advice and support around safeguarding.
