Safeguarding is a term that relates to the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and this approach is strongly promoted at Broadmeadow. Safeguarding is defined in Working Together to Safeguard Children as:
- protecting children from maltreatment
- preventing impairment of children’s health and development
- ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care and
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
At Broadmeadow Special School we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect everyone who works in our school to share this commitment.
Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them.
