Safeguarding children and child protection applies to all children up to the age of 18.
Safeguarding the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering from, or likely to suffer, significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.
The purpose of this policy is to inform staff, parents, volunteers and governors about the school's responsibilities for safeguarding children and to enable everyone to have a clear understanding of how these responsibilities should be carried out.
We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting children from harm and that the child's welfare is our paramount concern.
All staff members believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.
