  • Beddau Buddies child protection policy

    It is the responsibility of all adults who care for children to protect them from harm, in accordance with the all Wales child protection procedures.

    If any person has knowledge, concerns or suspicions that a child is suffering, has suffered or is likely to be at risk of harm from others, it is their responsibility to ensure that the concerns are referred to Social services or the police, who have statutory duties and powers to investigate and intervene when necessary.

    At least one staff member has received child protection training and training will be cascaded to all members of staff. All members of staff have been made aware of possible symptoms of children at risk and are aware of their responsibility to report concerns according to the all wales child protection procedures, a copy of which is kept on the premises.
    Concerns must be kept confidential to as few people as necessary.

    If a parent or Guardian has concerns about a child they should be advised to contact Social services direct.

    This applies to the following circumstances;

    • If a child or young person displays recognised signs of abuse.
    • If someone tells a member of staff that they or another child or young person is being abused.
    • If the behaviour of any adult (including colleagues and members of the public) towards children or young people causes concern.

    The procedures set out in the all Wales child protection procedures will be followed in the event of suspected child abuse.

    All the staff have been excellent! My son was three in September and I have been completely reassured that he is happy in Buddies. He can’t wait to go back. Everyone is very friendly and there is a wonderful welcome and happy buzz whenever I go.

    My son loves Beddau Buddies! He has attended since the day he started school and it’s become part of our lives. The staff ate fab. My new baby will definitely be attending Buddies when it’s old enough.
