What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
- 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.
Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.
Safeguarding at Wigton Infant School
At Wigton Infant School the welfare of our children is our main priority. We take safeguarding very seriously, therefore we have a number of policies in relation to safeguarding, which can be found below. All staff have been trained in level 1 safeguarding and our safeguarding team have received both level 2 and level 3 training.
At Wigton Infant School we:
- Take a child centered approach
- Provide a safe environment for children to learn in
- Look out for signs of a safeguarding issue
- We teach our pupils about staying safe and introduce lessons on bullying, healthy eating, internet safety and road safety so that the children are aware of how to keep themselves safe.
- Work with carers, parents and children to resolve concerns brought to our attention.
