we have a commitment to keep children and other vulnerable people safe and secure. We have built up trusted relationships with parents and professionals to ensure we are able to deal with any concerns swiftly and in the most sensitive manner. Please do no be offended if we ask questions when we are concerned. Most of the time there is nothing to worry about, but we will need to make sure.
If you have a concern about the welfare of a child, it is important that you pass this information on. If it relates to another family, you will need to report this directly to the local authority. The link below will take you directly to the place where you will find more information
Upper Horfield Children's Centre
Daycare & Family Support
Upper Horfield Nursery is committed to safeguarding all children, young people and vulnerable adults that come into contact with our Centre. We believe that all children, young people and vulnerable adults have an equal right to protection from abuse, regardless of their age, race, religion, ability, gender, language, background or sexual identity and consider the welfare of the child/ young person / vulnerable adult is paramount.
We will take every reasonable step to ensure that children, young people and vulnerable adults are protected where our staff and partners are involved in the delivery of our work. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
We enable all our staff and those who work with us to make informed and confident decisions regarding safeguarding. We expect everyone (staff, advisory board, governors, volunteers and anyone working on behalf of the Centre) to have read, understood and adhere to our policy and related procedures.
