Everyone at Wentworth Nursery School and Children’s Centre who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. Wentworth staff are particularly important in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as we are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. Our staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. Our staff will work with children’s social care, the police, health services and others services to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
