Safeguarding Policy

It is the responsibility of all adults who care for children to protect them from harm.

We have a duty to take reasonable action to ensure the welfare and safety of all children and vulnerable adults. If we feel at any time we have a cause for concern that a child in our care or an adult that may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse we will follow the nurseries child protection procedure for Safe Guarding Children and Vulnerable Adults and will inform the on call duty social worker of our concerns. This may also involve a visit to the home by a social worker. The Children Act 1989 lays a duty upon Social Services to investigate if it believes that a child may be suffering significant harm. The four categories of significant harm are:

  • Neglect,
  • Physical
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse

All staff will by checked for criminal offences under the rehabilitation of offenders act prior to their employment with us.

Staff areĀ vetted to meet stringent requirements prior to starting work at Little Cherubs. Satisfactory references from the most recent former employers and Disclosure and Barring Service checks are obtained for each member of staff we employ.
