We have selected the Key Policies to display on our website that we feel will be of most interest to you. Should you wish to view any other policies, please contact the office for further details.
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:
Children can be placed on the nursery school waiting list once they are two years old and have completed an application form. Nursery places are offered subject to availability.
This policy outlines what responsibilities both staff and parents have in managing behaviour.
At Norcot we actively follow the guidance issued by the DfE to promote the fundemental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs.
