Keeping Children Safe

Our first responsibility is to keep all children safe. We know that children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure and it is our aim to maintain the very highest standards of welfare and child protection.

We operate in a culture of honesty and openness, where all staff and Committee members take responsibility for keeping children safe.

All employees undertake regular safeguarding training and are fully aware of our safeguarding and child protection policies, including whistle blowing.

Our designated safeguarding lead is Charlotte Sale and our deputy safeguarding lead is Claire Jeeves.

The person responsible for Child Protection on our Pre-school Committee is our Chair, Stephanie Lawrence.
