Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.
Health, Safety and Welfare
The health, safety and welfare of all children is of paramount importance. We provide an environment that allows children to gain self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence through child-led activities and encouragement from caring staff.
We allow children to explore the world around them, learning how to manage their own risks and experiment using their ideas. We support children to understand boundaries and work together to create an atmosphere of cooperation and respect, showing consideration for each other’s needs.
We are committed to safeguarding children and aim to create a culture of vigilance. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. We are a community and all those directly connected - staff, parents, families, pupils and visitors - have an essential role to play in making it a safe, secure and happy environment for all.
Children in our care have the right to protection regardless of age, gender, race, culture, background or disability. They have a right to be safe in our setting.
In line with our child protection policy, should you have any concerns about a child’s health, safety, or welfare, speak to a Designated Safeguarding Lead as soon as possible.
Staff and Volunteers
Children at our setting are never left unsupervised. There is a minimum of two members of staff on the premises at any one time and we operate according to the EYFS standards on adult to child ratios. Volunteers are never left to work unsupervised and are asked to sign a volunteer agreement. All staff have a responsibility to report concerns they have about a child.
In addition to our safeguarding leads, all our caring staff work hard to establish positive relationships with and between our children as well as their parents. Our Key Person system strengthens these bonds.
