Child Welfare & Safety and Child Protection

All educational establishments and services must take positive steps to help children and young people protect themselves by ensuring that programmes of health and personal safety are central to the curriculum and should have in place a curriculum that ensures that children/ young people have a clear understanding of the difference between appropriate and
 in appropriate behaviour on the part of another person, no matter who.

As with other areas of the curriculum, you will be kept informed of the health and personal safety programme for your child/ young person’s establishment.

Educational establishments and services must create and maintain a positive ethos and climate which actively promotes children and young people’s welfare and a safe environment by:

• Ensuring that children and young people are respected and listened to
• Ensuring that programmes of health and personal safety are central to the curriculum
• Ensuring that staff are aware of child welfare & safety and protection issues and procedures
• Establishing and maintaining close working relationships and arrangements with all other agencies to make sure that professionals collaborate effectively in protecting children and young people

Should any member of staff have concerns regarding the welfare or safety of any child or young person they must report these concerns to the head of the establishment.  The Head, or the person deputising for the Head, after judging that there may be grounds for concern regarding the welfare or safety of any child or young person must then immediately advise social work services of these concerns.
