Safeguarding and Child Protection are paramount within Rhymes Nursery. The most important responsibility we have as an early years setting, and as individual practitioners, is to safeguard and promote the welfare of every child within our care.
At Rhymes Nursery we maintain a safe environment in which children feel safe and secure. Children are confident to express their emotions and ask for help / support. We undertake to safeguard the children and staff from harm and abuse at all times.
Please see our Safeguarding Policy. Safeguarding information is displayed within each room in order to explain the procedure followed if ever a concern or issue is raised.
We build strong safeguarding foundations within each child through learning about and being aware of their own safety and personal wellbeing.
We adhere to the ‘Safer Recruitment’ guidelines and we have a robust vetting and recruitment procedure. All staff and students are vetted which includes full reference and identification checks. All staff, volunteers and students hold enhanced DBS Disclosures. We have a robust induction process for all staff and students which includes a probationary period. All staff are subject to regular supervisions and appraisals.
