Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. All professionals should ensure that their approach is child centred: this means considering at all times what is in the best interests of the child. Staff members must raise any safeguarding concerns with the appropriate safeguarding lead without delay. Concerns must be logged.
