Safeguarding Children is Everybody's Responsibility
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
Safeguarding, as well as Child Protection and keeping children safe from deliberate harm, also covers others areas of school life; pupils' health and safety, behaviour for learning, attendance and punctuality, meeting the needs of pupils with medical conditions, first aid, educational visits, intimate care, internet safety and school security.
