Pippins takes its duty of care responsibility very seriously.  All adults in the nursery receive Level 3/Level 2 in Child Protection/Safeguarding and receive refresher training/spot questions at Best Practice staff meetings throughout the year.

Pippins designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Hazel Hodge and the deputy designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Sharleen Treen.

Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy clearly sets out how we deal with any concerns.  Find these policies on the Policies section of our website.

Safeguarding Policy 2020/2021 and Whistleblowing Policy 2020/2021

We encourage staff to adhere strictly to the above policies and staff are clear about the procedures they need to follow.  If the nursery is significantly concerned about an incident (or build up of incidents over time) we might make a referral to MASH (Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub) for specialist advice.

If you are in any doubt about the safety of a child, immediately tell any member of staff, Hazel Hodge or Sharleen Treen.  If it is an evening, weekend or holiday it is possible to report a concern of your own direct to MASH (Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub). Call 0345 155 1071 and give as much information as you can.  Alternatively, you can contact Hazel Hodge in an emergency on 07779 825314.

The MASH is the central resource for the Devon local Authority area receiving all serious safeguarding and child protection enquiries.  The MASH is staffed with professionals from a range of agencies including police, probation, fire, ambulance, health, education and social care.  These professionals share information to ensure early identification of potential significant harm, and trigger interventions to prevent further harm to children.
