Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility here at Dearham. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively we ensure a child-centred approach to safeguarding. This means that we consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
Safeguarding includes the establishment and implementation of procedures to protect children from deliberate harm, however, safeguarding also encompasses all aspects of pupils’ health, safety and well-being.
