A place where children lead the learning
The nursery has a fully developed set of policies covering all areas of your child's education, development and safety. The safety and well-being of children at Staghills Nursery is of paramount importance at all times. All staff attend regular training in safeguarding and updates are passed from our Designated Safeguarding Leads to other staff within nursery.
Designated Senior Leads
Safeguarding at Stagills Nursery School is everyone’s priority. The Designated Safeguarding Leads and Safeguarding Governor take overall responsibility for Safeguarding and Child Protection, providing support to staff members to carry out their safeguarding duties and liaising closely with other services such as children’s social care.
Within any academic year, each DSL should receive up-to-date training for their area/s of responsibility, up-date any policies in consultation with the Governors and take personal responsibility for the dissemination of this training to the staff team and Governing body.

Today’s children are ‘digital’ from before they’re even born.
They get their gadgets early: 1 in 10 children are given their first mobile before they’re five years old! While they’re surfing the internet they’re also learning new skills, but, being technically savvy doesn’t always come with common sense! Children still need protecting.
The internet plays a big part in all our lives and offers us lots of amazing opportunities. By being aware of how to keep ourselves safe, and also teaching our children how to stay safe, we can all get the best out of the internet. Keep UP-TO-DATE AND STAY SAFE by following the links below:

KEEPING YOUNG CHILDREN SAFE ONLINE A new educational resource has been developed by the National Crime Agency (NCA) to help keep young people safe from online sexual abuse and exploitation. The resource, to be used by practitioners, teachers and parents with four to seven year olds, is based upon a three-episode animation series called Jessie and Friends. There are also accompanying storybooks available to download. The resource is designed to each children to recognise manipulative strategies in online chat like those typically used by offenders to groom children. It is hoped the resource will provide education to young children before they begin to encounter such risks online, making them less likely to become victims and/or be targeted by high-risk offenders.
