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
