Safeguarding legislation and government guidance say 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
Safeguarding includes child protection, health care plans, health and safety, site security, safety on school trips, and anti-bullying work.
Safeguarding and protecting our students from harm and promoting their welfare is crucial. At Connaught School for Girls, we strive to make school a safe place where students can feel secure; where they are encouraged to talk and they believe they will be heard.
