As a pre-school we have a duty to protect all the children who attend our pre-school and any siblings that they may have.
Safeguarding includes: Protecting children from harm, ensuring children are safe and well looked after, and taking action so that all children are able to grow up in a safe environment.
We work closely with other agencies to ensure that children are well protected, these agencies include; Wiltshire council, the police, health visitors, GPs and local schools.
A copy of the child protection leaflet that we give out to all new parents is available through this link:
As part of our safeguarding duty we monitor each Child's attendance at pre-school. It is not compulsory for children attend an early years setting, but as your child is registered to attend we must monitor when children do not attend. If we have any concerns about attendance then we will cascade this information to relevant agencies.
If you child will not be attending for any reason then please telephone/email us as soon as possible.
If you child does not attend pre-school when we are expecting him/her then we may telephone you to check for the reason why.
