What is safeguarding?
It might be difficult to accept, but every child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity.
Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:
- protecting children from maltreatment
- preventing impairment of children’s health or development
- ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
and “undertaking that role so as to enable those children to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.”
If you are worried about the welfare or safety of any pupil within North Wootton Community School please report this to the Senior Designated Person for Safeguarding (SDP) or his deputy.
