The Safeguarding Team

What is Children’s Safeguarding?

The word ‘safeguarding’ is an umbrella term covering a wide spectrum of situations and interventions, from early identification, intervention and support for vulnerable children and families, to situations where immediate action is needed to protect a child. The Department for Education (HM Government, 2015) defines safeguarding as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment;
  • Preventing the impairment of children’s health or development;
  • Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best possible outcomes.

Child protection is the protection of children who have been identified as experiencing, or likely to experience, significant harm to their health and wellbeing.
