CSL continually strive to support all learners, whether children, young people or vulnerable adults. Vulnerability can refer to age, disabilities or illnesses.

Safeguarding is a wider reaching term for ‘child protection’ and refers to promoting the protection of the welfare of children and shield them from harm. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Safeguarding is defined in ‘Working together to safeguard children’, issued by DfE as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health and development
  • Ensuring 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
