Security, policy and confidentiality
We have measures in place to ensure that no unauthorised person enters our premises and all visitors are asked to sign the visitor’s book and are accompanied around the building.
Copies of all our Policies and Procedures, including safeguarding are available on request, they are also displayed in the foyer for parental viewing.
Confidently is crucial to all our relationships but the welfare of the child is paramount. The law does not allow anyone to keep concerns relating to child abuse to themselves.
All information collected on a child is kept a locked cabinet and only accessed by the DSL and DDSL.
