In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all practitioners should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting children from maltreatment, preventing the impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development, 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.
New Horizons Academy fully recognises the responsibility we have to safeguard and promote the welfare of young people.
Information for Students
We encourage children at New Horizons Academy to speak to any member of staff if they feel worried or concerned. However, we are aware that sometimes it can be difficult to talk to an adult.
