Safeguarding Policy

The Centre takes safeguarding the welfare of children extremely seriously.  Everyone at the Centre has a responsibility to ensure all children are safe and all staff receive safeguarding training every three years.  We talk to parents about how we safeguard their children while they are with us.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please come and talk to our Designated Child Protection Officer, Helen Walsh, or our Deputy Child Protection Officer Lisa McCoy.  Please read our Safeguarding policy below:
