We are committed to providing a safe environment in which all children can learn and recognise the role that staff play in protecting children.

At Aston and Cote Pre-School we:

  • create safe environments for children through robust safeguarding practices

  • ensure that adults who work in the Pre-School, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children

  • make sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice

  • teach children about staying safe

  • maintain an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem. 

Our Pre-School manager Sharna Trotman is the settings designated safeguarding lead, with Val Faulkner as her deputy. Committee Chair Nikki Young is also a designated safeguarding lead for the setting.
