Safeguarding is a term which is broader than "child protection" and relates to the actions taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
- 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
As an Academy we take our role of safeguarding our staff and students very seriously. We believe the following resources and links will support you as a Parent / Carer to ensure we work together to keep your children safe.
George Salter Academy uses Impero Education Pro to actively protecting our students from a host of online dangers.
Through this comprehensive online safety monitoring, we are complying with the recent changes to the DfE’s Keeping Children Safe in Education statutory guidance.
