LA COCCINELLE DAY NURSERY

 

Safeguarding Policy:

 

Our nursery wants to work with children, parents and the community to ensure the safety of children and to give them the very best start in life. La Coccinelle recognises that safeguarding means protecting children from maltreatment, preventing impairment to a child’s health or development, and ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care, modelled through nursery practices. Child protection is a part of safeguarding and welfare promotion, but is an activity undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering or likely to suffer harm.

La Coccinelle recognises its moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. It endeavours to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. The nursery is committed to providing an environment which ensures children are safe from potential abuse and will respond to any suspicion of abuse in a way that protects the child’s rights and reinforces the adult’s responsibilities to the children.

Children learn best when they feel healthy, safe and secure, when their individual needs are met and when they have positive relationships with the adults caring for them, here at La Coccinelle we take all necessary steps to keep all children in our care safe and well. We make sure that all practitioners who have contact with the children in our care promote good health, manage behavior, maintain records accurately and abide by all of our polocies and procedures.

A safeguarding statement and brief guide to generic safeguarding procedures within the nursery can be found in the reception and people are advised to read it when visiting.

 

Principles

La Coccinelle core safeguarding principles are:

  • To work with children, staff, parents/carers and the community to ensure the safety of children and to create a safe environment for all.
  • Policies will be reviewed annually, unless an incident or new legislation or guidance suggests the need for an earlier review date.
  • La Coccinelle will ensure that the welfare of children is given paramount consideration when developing and delivering all activities.
  • All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity have equal rights to protection.
  • We encourage the children in our care to develop a sence of autonomy and independance through adult support in making choices and in finding names for their own feelings and acceptable ways to express them.
  • All staff have an equal responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest that a child is at risk of harm in accordance with this guidance.

 

Aims

  • To provide staff with the necessary information to enable us to meet our statutory responsibilities to promote and safeguard the wellbeing of children.
  • To ensure consistent good practice across the setting.
  • To demonstrate the setting’s commitment to safeguarding children.

 

Terminology

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children refers to the process of protecting children from abuse or neglect, preventing the impairment of their health or development, ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe, effective and nurturing care and undertaking that role so as to enable those children to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.

Child protection refers to the processes undertaken to meet statutory obligations laid out in the Children Act 1989 and associated in respect of those children who have been identified as suffering, or being at risk of suffering harm.

 

Context

  • The Children Act 1989 states that the child’s welfare is paramount and that every child has a right to protection from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
  • General welfare requirement: Safeguarding and promoting children’s welfare. The provider must take necessary steps to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
  • Early Years Foundation Stage principles: Unique Child, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environments, Learning and Development - Outcome: Stay Safe

Liaison with other bodies

  • We work within the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) guidelines.
  • We notify the registration authority (Ofsted) of any incident or accident and any changes in our arrangements, which affect the well being of children.
  • We have procedures for contacting the local authority on child protection issues, including maintaining a list of names, addresses and telephone numbers of social workers, to ensure that it is easy, in any emergency, for the nursery and social services to work well together.
  • Records of the local NSPCC contacts are also kept.
  • If a report is to be made to the authorities, we act within the current LSCB guidance in deciding whether we must inform the child's parents at the same time.
