All personal information concerning a child or family will be treated in the strictest confidence.
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
We encourage and use a multi-disciplinary approach to working with children with special educational needs. We will work in partnership with parents and specialist agencies in the best interests of the child.
We seek to identify children’s individual needs early to ensure these are met by the provision of appropriate learning opportunities.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILDREN
The Nursery accepts all children regardless of their gender, race, colour, religious beliefs, ethnic or national status, cultural background, or family status. We aim to create a positive self-image in all children and any manifestations of prejudice, however or wherever directed, will be dealt with positively.
The protection of children from abuse or neglect is our first priority. The Principal and Nursery Manager are qualified to level 3 in safeguarding and refresh their qualification every 3 years.
All other staff are level one trained in Safeguarding children and complete annual refresher safeguarding training to comply with local safeguarding procedures, approved by the Local Safeguarding Board.
