Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: “protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or 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”.
Where concerns have been raised that a child is suffering significant harm, or is likely to do so, the school will intervene to protect that child. Action will also be taken to promote the welfare of a child in need of additional support, even if they are not suffering harm or are at immediate risk.
Mrs Alison Jackson and Ms Lynn Campbell – Mayfield School’s Designed Members of Staff for Child Protection provide support to staff and students with regard to all safeguarding matters and liaise closely with other services to ensure the safety and well-being of Mayfield students.
