‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility’.

Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018

Cleator Moor Nursery School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all members of our school community. We strive to establish and maintain an ethos where children and adults feel safe and secure, in a happy and stimulating environment.

The wellbeing of all children and adults (staff, parents, carers, and visitors) is paramount. To this end we follow certain procedures. It is our duty of care to monitor and act on any disclosures. We work closely with outside agencies and operate a policy of safer recruitment where all staff are DBS checked.

We follow the Cumbria Child Protection Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board local guidance and have systems in place to share concerns regarding children’s welfare with our Designated Person for Child Protection, with parents and with relevant external agencies. Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children, may also include us needing to consult specifically with and take advice from, the Police or Children’s Social Care, should the need arise.
