What is safeguarding?
It might be difficult to accept, but every child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity.
"Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:
Safeguarding children and protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.”
(In government documents a child is defined as anyone who has not yet reached their 18th birthday. “Children” therefore means “children and young people” throughout.)
Paper copies of all documents and policies on the website are available from the school office.
