hi Amina,
Indicators in the context of safeguarding are
Physical abuse, bruises to the eyes, mouth, or ears, fingertip bruising (grasp mark), bruises of different ages in the same place. Outline bruises (hand prints, belts or shoes). Bruising on non-mobile babies. Burns bites and scars or unusual shaped scars and fractures.
Neglect- undernourished, dirty skin and hair, dirty or soiled clothing, inappropriate clothing for the weather, hunger and stealing food, tireness, being withdrawn, being left unsupervised and not being given any medical care.
Sexual abuse- recurrent urinary infections, genital and rectal itching and soreness, inappropriate behaviour regarding age and ability, inappropriate level of sexual knowledge, and sexual abusive behaviour toward others, lack of trust, regression, become isolated and withdrawn.
Emotional abuse, low self-esteem, attention seeking behaviour, nervous behaviour, continual rocking, hair twisting, delayed development, and self-mutilation.

Im on this question. Am I right in thinking that a sign and indicator are pretty much the same thing?

Hi, welcome to silkysteps, yes similar they are synonyms, the difference is subtle maybe seen as the contrast between confirmed and suspected or maybe in the reliability of witnessed evidence - sign and indication - empirical evidence
