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.
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome.

and

“The action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm – is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.”

Recent Events

We understand that children may be worried and have questions about the recent tragic events in Manchester and London. At Golborne Community Primary School we strive to ensure that every child feels safe. If your child has any questions or needs support you can find advice in the following booklet ‘ Supporting Children Worried about Terrorism provided by the NCPCC.

More advice can be found on the NSPCC website here: www.nspcc.org.uk/what-we-do/news-opinion/supporting-children-worried-about-terrorism/
