Policy and Courses
All Childminders and persons working with children are aware of the importance of Safeguarding the well-being of the children we come into contact with. SCA regularly update this page with Government guidelines and policies to ensure best practice of our Childminders. Please check our training pages regularly for additional courses which may be of value to you.
The Government handbook sets out what Ofsted inspectors must consider when inspecting safeguarding. It outlines the evidence that inspectors will look for during inspections and sets out the judgements they will make.
The handbook was updated in August 2016 and a document summarising the main changes has also been published.
If you have concerns over the safety of a child it is essential that you let the relevant people know. For contact information to your Local Safeguarding Children's Board (LSCB), click here
