We have stringent policies and procedures in place to ensure that we act effectively in pursuing the five outcomes that ensure children’s wellbeing and that Every Child Matters. (HM Govt ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’)
These outcomes are paramount in all our work. They are to make sure that all our children can:
stay safe (in the context of this Safeguarding Statement, this is the main focus)
enjoy and achieve
make a positive contribution
achieve economic wellbeing
The work of all professionals and agencies involved in safeguarding children and promoting their welfare is governed by a legislative Framework. We make sure we work conscientiously to fulfil all statutory requirements. In particular all our work and procedures are governed by the general duties set out in the Children’s Act, and the statutory guidance ’Working Together to Safeguard Children' (2006). We also work within the policy and practice guidance set out by MKSCB (Milton Keynes Safeguarding Children Board).
We have appropriate procedures in place for responding to situations in which we believe that a child has been abused or is at risk of abuse.
All our staff are trained in Safeguarding, and training is annually reviewed.
