SAFEGUARDING & SUPPORT
Safeguarding is an integral part of our work in Early Years, and our commitment to this covers the children we care for and their families too.
If you are concerned about your child, or need advice about something that you are experiencing in your home life please be assured that you can reach out to nursery for support.
You can speak to your child’s key person, the room leader, the manager or any member of staff that you feel comfortable speaking to.
If you can explain or give some idea of what your concerns are we will offer advice, or if we do not feel that it is appropriate for us to advise on the subject provide details of someone that can.
Anything that you speak to nursery about will be treated with confidence, and we will not share that information unless we feel it is necessary in order to protect a child from harm.
We work closely with agencies that can offer support including Locala, the Early Years SEN Support service, and Kirklees Safeguarding Children Partnership. We keep contact details for services that can offer support with issues from Domestic Abuse to housing and financial support.
If ever we felt that more formal support was needed for a child or family we would discuss with the parents or carer before making any referrals, unless we felt that to do so would place a child at risk of harm.
If you ever need support please remember that you can look to us and we will help however possible.
