Safeguarding and child protection.

At Windham Nursery School, we take the safeguarding of our children seriously. We all have a shared responsibility and a duty of care to safeguard our community. All members of staff, as well as volunteers and those who visit the school regularly, are all subject to enhanced DBS checks to ensure their suitability for working with children.

At Windham, staff are trained to know what to do should a safeguarding issue arise. Our volunteers undergo a comprehensive safeguarding training so that they, too, are aware of our procedures.

Mobile phones are not permitted to be used on site by visitors or volunteers, and staff have all agreed to a comprehensive mobile phone policy and do not use their phone when children are around.


We are vigilant, proactive and have robust  safeguarding and child protection procedures to ensure all our children and staff are safe.


If you have any concerns please speak to a member of our Designated safeguarding Team (as shown below) directly or Claire Salama who is the Safeguarding governor on
