Child protection issues

Children achieve their maximum ptential in an environment that is safe, secure and supportive in all their needs.


Heatherton Preschool aims to create an atmosphere where children feel valued and safe in a place where their welfare is promoted.


We will be rigorous and vigilant in protecting children at Heatherton Preschool.


We will do this through a careful staff recruitment and selection process, ongoing supervision and staff development.


Everyone involved in Heatherton Preschool is obliged to make sure that the children using the preschool are safe. Any concerns will be taken seriously and acted upon appropriately.


We will pay attention to what children say and feel.



'We are committed to working in close partnership with parents, all relevant agencies and partners in child protection, in accordance with locally agreed procedures and practices, to achieve this aim'.
