Commitment to Safeguarding

Keeping children safe is our number one priority. We ensure that the safety and well-being of every child is at the centre of every decision we make. Arc All Aboard Nursery staff have a responsibility to create and maintain a safe learning environment for all our young people. All our staff are aware and kept up to date with the child protection procedures. As a setting we are committed to the safeguarding of all of our children.
