Child Protection Statement

Shernhall Pre-School has a statutory duty and pastoral responsibility towards the children in their care and we recognise that children have a fundamental right to be protected from harm.

The Children Act 1989 places a duty on us to assist Social Services in their work on behalf of children in need and their enquiries into allegations of child abuse.

We all have a responsibility to safeguard children from harm and prevent the abuse or neglect of children.

Complaints

We aim to provide a high quality, efficient and accessible service for parents, carers and children. At regular intervals the staff meet to discuss and review the daily running of the setting and the possible improvements to the services we offer. We obtain parents’ and children’s views through questionnaires, feedback in Learning Diaries and through the Parent Group. However, from time to time a complaint may arise about some aspect of the setting, or an individual member of staff. Usually, it should be possible to resolve any problems informally, as soon as they occur. If it is not possible to resolve the issue informally, there is a formal complaints procedure that must be followed.
