Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined by the Department of Educations as:
protecting children from maltreatment;
preventing impairment of children's health or development;
ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
