A key objective for local authorities is to ensure that children are protected from harm. Other functions of local authorities that make an important contribution to safeguarding are housing, sport, culture and leisure services, and youth services.” HM Government – Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015 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. The designated safeguarding lead for the nursery is Natalie Allison. The deputy in her absence is Sharon Hawksworth.
