Grove Road Community Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all of the children in our school.
Safeguarding - A Definition
The definition used in the Children Act 2004, and in Working together to safeguard children 2018 can be summarised as:
- protecting children from maltreatment
- preventing impairment of children's health or development
- ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
As part of our safeguarding responsibilities we follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Board (NYSB) Procedures. Further information about the NYSB can be found here.
