Safeguarding at Ashmole

Definition of Safeguarding

Ashmole adopts the definition of safeguarding used by Ofsted derived from The Children Act, 2004:

  • protecting children and young people 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
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
  • (Ofsted 2015)

Ashmole recognises the statements made in DfE guidance that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone; we also aim to adopt a child-centred approach to ensure that we never lose sight of the needs of the children (Working Together to Safeguard Children, DfE 2015).
