Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
When we talk and listen to a child we help them to have a voice.
Having a voice that is heard is the most powerful safeguarding tool a child can have.
If you have any concerns about keeping children safe or any questions about our safeguarding policy and procedures, come and see a member of our safeguarding team.
Having freedom to make choices also means the child has the freedom to say ‘No!’ or ‘Stop! I don’t like it!’
At Pound Park and Cardwell we want all of our children to be confident enough to make choices.
