The Whitehaven Academy (TWA) recognises that the welfare and safeguarding of its students is a priority. The DfE defines safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as:
- protecting children from maltreatment;
- preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;
- ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
