Safeguarding means protecting children from harm, abuse and neglect. As school we have a legal duty to protect and promote the wellbeing of children under 18.


All the governors and staff at YGG Calon y Cymoedd  share the same objective to help keep all children safe by contributing to:


  • Providing a safe environment for them to learn.
  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm and take appropriate action with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe both at home and in school.


​To achieve our objective to keep all children safe we aim to:

  • Prevent unsuitable people from working with the children.
  • Promote safe practices.
  • Identify instances where there are concerns about a child’s welfare and take appropriate action to keep them safe.
  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children.


As a rights respecting school, we fully uphold the Articles of the United Nations Convention for Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

Catrin Coulthard   (Designated Safeguarding Lead/Headteacher)

Emma Bartlett (Designated Safeguarding Lead/Deputy Headteacher/ALNCo)
