Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm. At Shelfield we take action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes. We have a dedicated team of staff who work closely with staff and outside agencies in order to support the safeguarding needs of our children and families.
