Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and to protect them from harm.
Safeguarding involves protecting children from abuse and maltreatment, preventing harm to children's health or development and ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care.
We have been talking about safeguarding in assembly and all the children know that if they have a worry or a concern, they can talk to the School’s Designated Safeguarding Leads, who are Mrs Brockington and Miss Turner.
Last week the Community Inclusive Trust completed a Safeguarding Audit here at school and I am delighted to tell you that they found that we do an excellent job of keeping our children safe. The visitors were particularly impressed with the school council and the way in which they were clear about the safeguards that we have in place and commented on the schools strong culture of celebrating individual achievement.
