We would always hope to share any concerns we may have about your child with you, at the first opportunity as we hope you do with us about your, or any other child.  Part of our legal duty to safeguard your children, may also include us needing to consult with and take advice from other agencies such as the Police, or Children’s Social Care, should the need arise.

Safeguarding means - Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment, preventing harm to children's health or development and ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care.
