Safeguarding

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. 

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined by the Department for Education as:  

  • protecting children from maltreatment  
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development  
  • ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.  
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.  

Child protection is a part of safeguarding and promoting welfare. It refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.
