Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. All professionals should ensure that their approach is child centred: this means considering at all times what is in the best interests of the child. Concerns must always be logged and staff members must raise any safeguarding concerns with the appropriate safeguarding lead without delay.
Parents should feel able to come and talk to any of our team, and/or the safeguarding leads named below.
Safeguarding policies: We regularly update key policies in relation to safeguarding. You can find our policies for Child Protection and Safeguarding, Online Safety, Whistleblowing and other relevant policies on the Policies Page.
