Our nursery operates under a robust safeguarding children policy which is required under Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework – Safeguarding and Promoting Children’s Welfare and is based on the guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children.
Safeguarding is about more than child protection. Child Protection is specifically about protecting children and young people from suspected abuse and neglect. Safeguarding is a much wider concept, it includes everything an organisation can do to keep children and young people safe. This includes minimising the risk of harm and accidents, and actively taking steps to deal with safety concerns and to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Natalie Allison. The deputy in her absence is Sharon Hawksworth.
