Safeguarding Children

As professional child carers, we have a responsibility to the children in our care, which includes being aware of possible signs of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional and neglect). We have guidance notes issued by Sandwell MBC and we have a duty to follow their Child Protection Procedures and to report any concerns we may have regarding a particular child.
 
We would like to stress the importance of open discussion with the staff on any problems you may be experiencing at home which could have an influence on your child.

At Nursery we have a duty to follow Sandwell’s Child Protection Procedures. Whenever possible we will share our concerns with you before contacting Sandwell Social Services Children and Families Team. However, the welfare of the child is our first priority, so there may be times when we may speak with Sandwell Social Services Children and Families Team before advising you. If you know that your children has hurt themselves or is upset, then please let us know.
