Safeguarding Children

Our safeguarding course has been created because, first and foremost, each and everyone of us has basic human rights Chief among those is the right to be healthy, happy and treated well regardless of race, gender, age or location.

When those rights are abused in someway it's wrong, and it is therefore vital that guidelines, policies and procedures are followed to enable everyone, without exception to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.
