“Whilst local authorities play a lead role, safeguarding children and protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.” Working Together to Safeguard Children (HM Government 2015).
Broadhurst School has a duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, who are their pupils, and prevent radicalization and extremism. This responsibility necessitates a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedures. To ensure this, the school may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.
