It is everybody’s responsibility to keep children and young people safe. If you’re concerned that a child is being abused or neglected you should report it so that the child can be protected.
If you think a child is in immediate danger, call the police on 999.
If you have a concern about a child, please call MASH on 0345 050 7666
Cholsey Pre-School works with children, parents and the community to ensure the rights and safety of children and to give them the very best start in life. Our Safeguarding Policy is based on the three key commitments of the Early Years Alliance Safeguarding Children Policy.
Safeguarding is the top most priority for Cholsey Pre-School. As an OFSTED registered day care provider we are legally required to report all cases of actual or suspected abuse of any child in our care.
All our staff have up to date training in Safeguarding and have relevant DBS checks. Any new members of staff will be employed subject to DBS and Reference checks as well as passing our rigorous interview process.
Any concerns regarding staff contact the Local Authority Designate Officer (Lado) Alison Beasley: Tel: 01865 815956 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
