Ystruth Primary

T.E.A.M. Together Everyone Achieves More


Ystruth Primary School follows and takes account of the relevant Safeguarding Procedures outlined by Welsh Government. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being and welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff, volunteers and members of the school community to share and contribute to this commitment. 


If you have any concerns about your child or any other pupil in the school, please speak to Mrs J Stonuary, Mrs M. Miller or Mrs G. Watkins.



Safeguarding is about protecting children and adults from abuse or neglect and educating those around them to recognise the signs and dangers. 

The Difference between Safeguarding and Child Protection


What is the difference between the terms safeguarding and child protection?


In practice, Safeguarding is the policies and practices that schools and Governing Bodies put in place to keep children safe and promote their well-being. This includes everything from the security of the buildings and environment, to the safe recruitment of staff and everything in between. 


Child Protection is a term used to describe the activity that is undertaken to protect a specific child or children, who are suffering or liable to suffer significant harm. 


Child Protection is just one of many aspects of Safeguarding. 



One of the most important principles of safeguarding is that it is everyone’s responsibility. Each professional and organisation must do everything they can, to ensure that children and adults at risk are protected from abuse.
