Safeguarding is important for everyone in the learning environment, not just pupils. Parents need to be able to feel confident that their children are fully protected in an environment that will give them the freedom to learn and achieve their full potential. Staff need the security of knowing that they too are protected.
Learn the key competencies of child protection to keep children safe from harm, such as illness, abuse or injury.
