What is Safeguarding?

Every day a student at risk will experience some kind of harm, abuse, ill-treatment or neglect. Safeguarding is about helping students to keep themselves safe and to prevent harm from happening in the first place.

Safeguarding is also about responding to concerns about alleged and suspected harm and putting in place plans to help and protect those who cannot protect themselves. Everybody has the right to live their lives free from violence and abuse.
