What is Safeguarding?
The Government has defined the term 'Safeguarding Children' as:
'The process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing impairment of their health and development, and ensuring they are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care that enables children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully'.
Our Safeguarding Officer at Thurstonland First School is Mrs Claire Minogue. Please contact Mrs Minogue if you have any concerns regarding the safety and well being of a child/children. Please see the header at the top of this site for our up to date contact details.
