Safeguarding Information for Parents/Carers
At Oakwood keeping our children safe is our primary concern. Our safeguarding approach is supported by both our Senior Leadership Safeguarding team and our Family Liason and Welfare Co-ordinator Team.
‘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. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals 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.'
Staff members working with children are advised to maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned. When concerned about the welfare of a child, staff members should always act in the best interests of the child
