All adults in our Pre School have a responsibility for safeguarding the children. All staff complete Basic Awareness of Safeguarding Training and this is updated annually.

All staff to wear Smarden Pre School identification Badge, and they must sign in each morning to receive this.

All staff, trustees, committee members and volunteers undertake a DBS check and details of these checks are kept in a central record in Pre School.

All Pre School policies are kept centrally, the safeguarding policy is reviewed annually and its related policies and practices are reviewed regularly. Our practices and policies reflect the guidance outlined in “Keeping Children Safe in Education”.

We believe that it is important to make children aware that unacceptable behaviour towards them should not be tolerated.

Our PSED curriculum supports children to be able to recognise when their safety becomes compromised and to know what they can do about it.

If you have any concerns relating to a child please speak to a member of staff or if you’re not comfortable doing so you can email the trustees directly at
