Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • Ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes

Safeguarding is very important to us at Welbourne Primary Academy. Please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Statement and Safeguarding Policy at the bottom of this page.
