Safeguarding Policy statement
At Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School we work with children, parents and the community to ensure the rights and safety of children and to give them the very best start in life.
One of the underlying principles of The Children Act 1989 is that the welfare of the child is paramount at all times. As nursery staff we have a responsibility and a duty to help protect and safeguard the children at all times whilst in our care.
Children attending nursery have a right to feel safe, and staff working within the nursery have a responsibility to act promptly on any concerns they may have regarding a child’s welfare and wellbeing, working in partnership with parents and carers.
This policy reads in conjunction with the South West Child Protection Procedures, available electronically on www.swcpp.org.uk and information available on the Safeguarding Children Board website: www.South glos.gov.uk/safeguarding.

Some children have close links with extended families of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins while others may be more removed from close kin or may live with other relatives or foster carers. Some children have needs that arise from disability or impairment or may have parents that are affected by disability or impairment.
