Policy Statement

This organisation recognises its key statutory duty to safeguard children who attend its services. Everyone employed by the service has a responsibility in relation to child safeguarding. This includes staff being aware of the potential risks of abuse and raising any concerns to their line manager.

In this regard, the organisation recognises the definition of safeguarding adopted in statutory guidance:

  • protecting children from maltreatment

  • preventing impairment of children’s 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.
