What is Premier Education's safeguarding policy?

Premier Education Group recognises the responsibility it has regarding safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

Premier Education Group has a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and young people. This is defined as:

• protecting children from maltreatment 
• preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or 
development 
• ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision 
of safe and effective care 
• taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

All children, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or 
belief, sex, or sexual orientation has an equal right to protection from all types of 
harm or abuse. Types of abuse are explained in paragraphs 22-26 of Part 1 of 
KCSIE 2020. Some children are additionally vulnerable because of the impact of 
previous experiences, their level of dependency, communication needs or other 
issues.
We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone who works with 
children and that they are an important part of the wider safeguarding system. PEG 
has an essential role to play to make children and young people feel safe and 
secure.
PEG believes that everyone involved in working with children and vulnerable adults 
has a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and young people, to keep 
them safe and to practise in a way that protects them
