Nothing is more important than keeping our children safe and the safeguarding of children is everyone’s responsibility. We at Queen Mary Avenue Infant and Nursery School pride ourselves on a knowledgeable, vigilant and highly trained team of staff who are equipped with the skills to nurture and provide the necessary support for children from a varied range of backgrounds.
We work closely with parents, families and multi-agencies. We invest in the expertise of a play therapist and run our own nurture club. We run a daily on-site breakfast club and, in addition, all children have access to toast every morning in their classrooms during task time.
Safeguarding policies and practices are communicated and reviewed regularly.
Themed days that deliver important safety messages are a regular feature that enhance our curriculum.
