This organisation, KSSS believes that children must be protected from harm at all times.
We believe every child should be valued, safe and happy. We want to make sure that children we have contact with know this and are empowered to tell us if they are suffering harm.
We want children who use or have contact with this organisation to enjoy what we have to offer in safety.
We want parents and carers who use or attend our organisation to be supported to care for their children in a way that promotes their child’s health and well-being and keeps them safe.
We will achieve this by having an effective child protection procedure and following National and Local guidance; Working Together to Safeguard Children 2010 (Department for Children Schools and Families – DCFS) and the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Safeguarding Children Board Child Protection Procedures – staffsscb.org.uk; www.safeguardingchildren.stoke.gov.uk
If we discover or suspect a child is suffering harm we will notify social services or the police in order that they can be protected if necessary.
This child protection policy and our child protection procedure apply to all staff, volunteers and users of Kettlebrook Short Stay School and anyone carrying out any work for us or using our premises.
We will review our child protection policy and procedures at least every 1 year to make sure they are still relevant and effective.
