Safeguarding, and promoting the welfare of children, is everyone’s responsibility and is defined by the DfE for childcare providers as:
• protecting children from maltreatment
• preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development
• ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
• taking action if you identify or have concerns that children are suffering from, or are at risk of harm
As a provider, our company has a duty of care to children who attend. This means that by law we must take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of the children and to protect them from harm.
All of our staff undertake Safeguarding training and our management team are all qualified Designated Safeguarding Leads.
