Safeguarding policy

Last updated - 16/05/2023

Find out how we manage safeguarding at Satellites and what action Group Leaders need to take before the event.

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and young people and protect them from harm. Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children and young people from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children and young people’s health or development
  • ensuring children and young people grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
