Barmston Village Primary School

Be the best that you can be


There can be no issue of greater importance to parents and carers, or to schools, than the safety of their children; safeguarding remains high on Ofsted’s agenda and will continue to do so.


Ofsted adopts the definition of safeguarding used in the Children Act 2004 and in the Department for Education and Skills (now DfE) guidance document Working Together to Safeguard Children, which focuses on safeguarding and promoting children’s and learners’ welfare.  This can be summarised as:-

  • protecting children and learners from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children’s and learners’ health or development
  • ensuring that children and learners are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • undertaking that role so as to enable those children and learners to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully
