Safeguarding

Aims

We provide an environment that allows children to gain self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence through child lead activities and encouragement from caring staff.

We allow children to explore the world around them learning how to manage their own risks and experiment using their ideas.

We support children to understand boundaries, work together to create an atmosphere of cooperation and respect. Understanding children's individual needs.

 

Staffing

Children at the setting are never left unsupervised. There is a minimum of two members of staff on the premises at any one time and we operate according to the EYFS standards on adult to child ratios. Volunteers are never left to work unsupervised and are asked to sign a volunteer agreement. All staff have a responsibility to report concerns they have about a child.
