What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding covers a wide range of activities and actions taken by a number of different people and agencies. 


By ‘Safeguarding’ we mean:

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment

  • Preventing harm to children’s mental and physical health or development

  • Ensuring children are provided with safe and effective care

  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best possible outcomes

Safeguarding is about keeping children safe at all times. Child protection is part of safeguarding and promoting welfare. It refers to activity undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.

Our full safeguarding policy can be found on our Policies page.
