Safeguarding


Our nursery aims to create an environment in which all children are safe and free from abuse or harm at all times. All members of staff (including students) are DBS checked and are required to attend regular Safeguarding Training. The staff will respond to any suspicions of abuse promptly and appropriately by referring them to the designated manager, who will normally speak to the parent / carer in the first instance and may refer to Social Care if necessary.
We also have a policy surrounding the use of mobile phones ans social networking sites that all staff agree to work to. We also request that when a parent / carer comes in to stay and play, they do not use their mobile phone whilst on the premises.

We have an extensive range of Policy & Procedures documentation, which is available to view on request.

Admissions Policy

Safeguarding & Promoting Children's Welfare

Whistle Blowing Policy
