Health & Safety
We firmly believe that the safety of the children is paramount and were delighted to receive an ‘outstanding’ grade in this area from Ofsted. We have all the necessary policies, procedures and systems in place regarding Health & Safety and regularly consult with a specialist advisor. We also have CCTV cameras throughout the building to ensure the safety and security of the children whilst they are on the premises. All staff are qualified First Aiders and regularly receive Health & Safety training.
