        Safeguarding

        What is Safeguarding ?

        The phrases ‘child protection’ and ‘safeguarding’ are often used interchangeably, but the words have distinct meanings. The key statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ explains what safeguarding is: Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance 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.

        Put simply safeguarding is:

        • Child protection
        • Supporting vulnerable children
        • Safe care, at home, in school and in the community
        • Taking action
