Designated Lead Officer for Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding Children at  Golborne and Maxilla Children’s Centre

Keeping children safe is a high priority for everyone. You will see our “Safety Reminders” displayed around the centre and hope you will take a few moments to read them.

 

Safeguarding also involves protecting children from neglect or deliberate harm.

In order to safeguard and promote the welfare of everyone using the centre we have Safeguarding and Health and Safety Policies and Procedures in place.   Parents and carers are welcome to read them on request.

All staff, including students, volunteers, and staff employed by other organisations who work in the centre, must be security vetted and ensure that they are aware of our procedures.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will always ensure that our concerns about a child are discussed with their parents/carers first, unless such a discussion would place the child at risk of significant harm.

Our Designated Lead Person for Safeguarding and Child Protection is Head Teacher, Veronica Hilliard

In her absence, Begoña Toral-Moratinos (below)

If both are absent please see Charlotte Moss

 

 

 

If you are worried that a child is being neglected or abused please speak to the designated person. We will listen to your concerns in confidence and ensure that appropriate action is taken.  Alternatively you can contact the Local Authority on 020 7361 3013.
