Safeguarding & Child Protection
Committed to creating a safeguarding culture
At East Ruston Infant School & Nursery we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our children, keeping them safe and protecting them from harm. Safeguarding is quite simply everyone’s responsibility and the most important part of our job.
Safeguarding at East Ruston is based on trusting relationships with our children and giving them the confidence to speak to us if they have concerns knowing that we will listen. As such all of our staff receive annual Child Protection and Safeguarding Training as well as regular updates in terms of signs of safety and indicators of abuse. Equally we want to support our families by offering early interventions, advice and support whilst always having the individual child at the centre of what we do.
We have developed a safeguarding website that contains a great amount of valuable information on the different aspects of safeguarding within a school and nursery setting. There are also many links to useful organisations.
