Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding children is our main priority.

Safeguarding is an umbrella term and covers many more aspects than just child protection

Child Protection is protecting children from identified risks – originally focused on abuse at home now a wider concept to include bullying, abuse through new technologies etc

Safeguarding extends child protection to include preventing harm and promoting the well being of children.

Safeguarding is:

Protecting children from maltreatment
Preventing impairment of a child’s health or development
Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provisions of safe and effective care
Create opportunities to enable children to have optimum life chances in adulthood.
 (2004 Children’s Act)
