Safeguarding

It is imperative that children feel safe and secure at Harbury Pre-School. 

By providing a nurturing and supportive atmosphere our ethos is to celebrate each child’s individual achievements and to encourage them by modelling caring and positive attitudes.

To ensure maximum safeguards are in place adequate numbers of staff are trained to the level 2 child protection certification and are named designated safeguarding leads (DSLs).  They oversee the safeguarding practices at Harbury Pre-School.  Our current DSLs are Angie Clifton and Anne Stanton.  As well as this, all staff and volunteers have appropriate child protection level 1 training and comply with written policies and practices which are in place to keep children and staff safe. The policies and practices are subjected to frequent scrutiny to ensure that they comply with the latest statutory legislation and guidelines from the Early Years Foundation Stage, Warwickshire County Council and Ofsted.

Parents and carers are encouraged to read the policies and be aware of the safeguards that are in place. These include more recently written policies to cover subjects such as, preventing radicalisation, FGM, e-safety and social networking. Documentation is freely accessible to be viewed by parents and carers at all times, please ask any member of staff for further information.
