“Inspiring Children to Become Independent 
and Responsible Thinkers Since the 1850’s”
Welcome Safeguarding Information Learning  Nursery 

At Almeley Primary School and Little Elms Nursery safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. All practitioners make sure their approach is child-centred. This means they consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

If children and families  are to receive the right help at the right time, everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

 • protecting children from maltreatment;

 • preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;

 • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;

 • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

(*Children includes everyone under the age of 18)
