Safeguarding at Cardinal Road Infant and Nursery School

Cardinal Road Nursery and Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

 

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed below.

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 ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Operation Encompass

It is the implementation of key partnership working between Police, local Authorities and Children Services. The school receives notifications from MASH Police on events that have happened the night/day before. This is to ensure the school are aware that a child may have been a witness or part of a domestic incident in the home.
