Child Protection and Safeguarding

Our nursery wants to work with children, parents and the community to ensure the safety of children and to give them the very best start in life.

Our aims are to create an environment in which all children are accepted and valued regardless of race, language, religion, culture or home background, and to help children to establish and sustain satisfying relationships within their families, with peers, and adults. We work within the Local Safeguarding Board guidelines.

Our setting has a duty under the law to help safeguard children against suspected or actual ‘significant harm’.

Our employment practices ensure children against the likelihood of abuse in our settings and we have a procedure for managing complaints or allegations against a member of staff.

Our way of working with children and their parents ensures we are aware of any problems that may emerge and can offer support, including referral to appropriate agencies when necessary, to help families in difficulty.

All staff undertake Safeguarding training and the Manager and Deputy Manager hold a level 2 Award.
