At Walford Nursery & Primary School, we have a child centred and coordinated approach to safeguarding.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. All practitioners make sure their approach is child-centred. This means they consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
If children and families at Walford Nursery & Primary School are to receive the right help at the right time, everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:
• protecting children from maltreatment;
• preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;
• ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
• taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
Children includes everyone under the age of 18.
