Safeguarding and Wellbeing

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


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. (NSPCC, 2021). Visit each of the different areas of Safeguarding to see how our team works together to protect and safeguard pupils in our school.
