All staff have the skills to recognise signs of abuse and if it becomes apparent that something is wrong, we shall, in a caring and sensitive manner, approach the Parent/Carer, inform them of our observations and concerns and advise them that the Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board may have to be notified along with Careline and Ofsted.
If a member of staff is becoming concerned for the welfare of a child, they will discuss the matter privately with the Safeguarding Coordinator, Manger or Deputy Manager and it shall remain confidential.
All children, staff, parents, carers and visitors will, at all times receive a warm welcome from everyone at Playdays, regardless of race, colour, religion, disability or gender.
We have a named Equal Opportunities Officer. Playdays has disabled access for wheelchair users and our doors are wider than standard. Everybody will be respected and treated equally.
Resources are made readily available to all children and we use non- discriminatory practices at all times.
A wide range of books and materials are provided to assist children in their activities.
Children's planned activities will use multi cultural resources and we will study a wide variety of customs and beliefs.
Bullying is not acceptable at Playdays and we recognise that this can take many different forms by children, staff or visitors from outside agencies.
The environment at Playdays is checked daily for any health and safety hazards.
All furniture fixtures and fittings are regularly checked for damage, wear and tear.
All equipment at Playdays will reflect the children’s ages, size, cultural and religious beliefs.
