Evergreen Child
Protection Policy

Evergreen Child Protection Policy...

The whole of society has an obligation to protect children.

As a registered childminder and in accordance with the guidelines laid down in "The Children Act" (1989), I have a duty to report any suspicious incidents as well as accidents to the relevant authorities, as the welfare of the child is of paramount importance.

As a registered childminder and a member of the NCMA...

  • I have a duty to report any concerns or suspicions of child abuse to Social Services.
  • Any injuries that your child has upon arrival at my house must be logged in my accident book.
  • A brief explanation from you on how the injury occurred will be required and also your signature.
  • Any accidents that occur while your child is in my care will also be logged in the accident book with an explanation as to how the accident occurred and again your signature will be required to witness the entry.
  • Any suspected incidents of abuse will be recorded and passed on to the relevant authority.
  • If a suspected case of abuse is brought to my attention, I will first approach you as the parent/carer.

If there is a satisfactory explanation, then no further action will be taken.

If explanations are unsatisfactory, then I will not hesitate to contact the authorities.

  • If any cases of sexual abuse are suspected, then I will immediately inform the relevant authorities.

I have created an environment where children are safe and secure and can feel happy and well looked after in the absence of their parents/carers.

  • I will ensure that training is up to date and I am aware of how to recognise signs of abuse.
  • I have a responsibility and duty to protect children from abuse and will seek advice where necessary.
