Safeguarding children is everybody's business!
We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, whether as a parent or family member, a friend or neighbour, an employer, or as a paid or voluntary worker.
All members of the Grove community can help to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people if we are mindful of the children's needs and willing and able to act if we have concerns.
Definition of safeguarding
In its simplest terms 'safeguarding' can be defined as 'keeping children safe from harm, such as illness, abuse or injury.
At Grove Primary, we are committed to ensuring that;
- Everybody working with children, young people and their families take all reasonable measures to ensure that the risks of harm to children's welfare are minimised and
- When there are concerns about children and young people's welfare, we take all appropriate action to address those concerns, working to agreed with local policies and procedures in full partnership with other local agencies.
Everyone has a responsibility to make sure that children within our school are safe, as every Child Matters'
