Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online. Their goal is to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages, and in the care of children and young people. They report directly to Parliament and they are independent and impartial.
They aim to be “a force for improvement through intelligent, responsible and focused inspection and regulation”
What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is about more than child protection. Child protection is specifically about protecting children and young people from suspected abuse and neglect. Safeguarding is much wider than that. It includes everything an organisation can do to keep children and young people safe, including minimising the risk of harm and accidents and taking action to tackle safety concerns.
Safeguarding is also about being able to respond quickly and appropriately to concerns or allegations brought to the organisation, which means having the right policies and procedures in place to deal with difficult situations if they arise.
The Greenery Nursery School is committed to safeguarding each and every child in it's care. If you are concerned about any of our children, either within the school premises or outside the school environment, please contact a senior member of the management team and/or follow the links below:
