What is safeguarding?

The Government has defined the term ‘safeguarding children’ as:

The process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully.

As can be seen safe guarding can cover a wide range of areas and is covered by a wide range of policies and procedures. One of the main policies is the Child Protection Policy . There are though a number of other policies and procedures which have a clear link to safe guarding for example

Educational visits     Code of conduct (staff)
Health & Safety Attendance
Behaviour Inclusion & SEN
Bullying   Children in Public Care/Looked after Children
Confidentiality   PSHCE
Care, Control & Restraint  Children Missing Education (CME)
