WHAT IS SAFEGUARDING?

Safeguarding


Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment

  • preventing harm to children’s health or development

  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care

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

Protecting children from maltreatment and preventing impairment of children’s health or development is necessary, but not sufficient to ensure that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care. These aspects of safeguarding and promoting welfare are cumulative and all contribute to the five outcomes that are key to children and young people's wellbeing, namely:

  • Stay safe

  • Be healthy

  • Enjoy and achieve

  • Make a positive contribution

  • Achieve economic wellbeing

     

Child protection


Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.
