Who has a duty to safeguard children?
We have a responsibility to report any concerns we may have regarding the welfare of children in our care to the local Social Services Department and to share information with partner agencies.
We have a rigorous and robust recruitment process that gathers evidence about staff suitability to work with children. All references are checked, and all staff, students, governors and volunteers must undergo an enhanced police check. All staff and volunteers also undertake regular Safeguarding training.
We are required to keep a log of any existing injuries which include explanations from adults and children.
Any allegations made against staff will be dealt with through Rotherham Safeguarding Children Board. If allegations involve Daycare Staff it will also be reported to OFSTED.
We have a team of designated Safeguarding Officers at our centre. Please click here to view our current structure.
