This email will be monitored by the safeguarding lead on duty every 24 hours.
However, if you need advice and support in order to keep a child safe, or you wish to report a concern, please contact Duty and Advice (DAS) on 0116 454 1004. For emergencies, always contact the police on 999.
Safeguarding at Ash Field
The NSPCC website describes safeguarding as follows:
'All organisations that work with or come into contact with children should have safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity, can be protected from harm.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Safeguarding children and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.'
