Our setting will work with children, parents and the community to ensure the rights and safety of children and to give them the very best start in life. We carry out numerous procedures to ensure we meet the following three commitments.
Key commitment 1
We are committed to building a 'culture of safety' in which children are protected from abuse and harm in all areas of our service delivery.
Key commitment 2
We are committed to responding promptly and appropriately to all incidents or concerns of abuse that may occur and to work with statutory agencies in accordance with the procedures that are set down in 'What to do if you’re worried a child is being abused' (HMG 2006).
Key commitment 3
We are committed to promoting awareness of child abuse issues throughout our training and learning programmes. We are also committed to empowering young children, through our early childhood curriculum, promoting their right to be strong, resilient and listened to.
Further procedures may be viewed within the Safeguarding Children Policy within the setting.
