Keeping Children Safe in Education is statutory guidance for schools and colleges who must have regard to it when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Safeguarding incorporates all we do to ensure children grow up in circumstances that are safe, to protect them from maltreatment and to prevent the impairment of their health and development.

Child Protection is the activity undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering or at risk of suffering significant harm. This could be from a single traumatic event or an accumulation of significant events which interrupt or damage the child’s physiological or psychological development.

Legislation places responsibilities on school staff in the identification, prevention and management of child abuse and of safeguarding children from harm. Staff in schools are well placed to notice changes in children’s behaviour, injuries and other indicators of abuse. As trusted adults they may also receive disclosures from pupils about issues relevant to their safety. Ecclesfield School fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and young people and support them in school.
