Safeguarding Information for Parents & Students

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility: everyone at Taunton School has a role to play in looking after and promoting the rights of every child to be safe and fulfilled inside and outside of school.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health and development
  • Ensuring children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children have the best outcomes

Taunton School achieves this by placing safeguarding at the heart of everything we do. We generate a child-centred approach by ensuring that training and support exists for all students thereby promoting the right opportunities for learning and personal development.
