Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy October 2013
Under the Safeguarding Children Agenda, our school recognises that a Safeguarding Policy requires a broader view than that of the traditional child protection policy. The Safeguarding Children in Education model Child Protection Policy has been incorporated into this Policy, to further ensure clarity the Caerphilly Children’s Safeguarding Board Co-ordinator has been fully consulted in its construction. A number of elements that would previously not have been within a child protection policy have been incorporated. However, absolute focus is maintained that the aim of this document is the protection and welfare of children and young people.
