Nothing is more important than children’s welfare, and safeguarding is paramount in any childcare setting. Our Safeguarding Lead is Sam, who will ensure all staff, committee and visitors comply to safeguarding measures to ensure the wellbeing of all the children at Pre-School.
Child protection is the process of protecting a child identified as suffering from, or potentially suffering from, significant harm as a result of abuse or neglect. The term safeguarding is used more broadly and according to the latest government guidance it means:
Protecting children from maltreatment
Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
Ensuring the children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
Taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
