Safeguarding Children v4 Aims

The abuse of any child or young person- physically, emotionally, sexually or through neglect- can have a major long-term effect on all aspects of their health, development and well-being.

The revised Government's Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015 guidance sets out how organisations and individuals should work together to safeguard and promote their welfare. It is based on 2 key principles:

  • Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility with each professional and organisation playing their full part
  • Effective services are based on a clear understanding of the needs and views of children

Everyone involved in the care and education of children has a duty to:

  • Prevent abuse and neglect
  • Identify those children at risk
  • Promote children’s welfare, health and development
  • Act to prevent them from harm
