Policies & Procedures

Please do familiarise yourself with our list of Little Acorns Pre-school policies and procedures which are rigorously adhered to so as to ensure your child's emotional and physical wellbeing is outstanding at all times.

Little Acorns Probus Pre-school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place which we refer to in our policy below.  Parents and carers are welcome to read the policy on the website or request a hard copy.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is our head teacher Mrs Lyn McNamara.  Assistant head teacher Mr Matt Maloney is Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and the designated person for Children in Care.  For more information please log onto http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=7579
