Safe To Grow Policy

Safeguarding Policy

Our responsibility.

We take safeguarding seriously.

We try to properly look after children and adults who may be at risk.

We carefully select people who work with children and adults who may be at risk, and their supervisors.

We interview, take up references, and (where appropriate) apply for DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks.

We train our people, and track their training, and renew their training regularly.

If you believe a crime is being committed ring 999 and ask for the police
