Amy Davies – Training1>
Amy attended a difficult course last week. The topic was “Impact of Child Abuse” and extends previous training on Safeguarding Children. It’s a harrowing course but helps us to recognise the signs and symptoms. It also shows practitioners how cases are managed. Well done Amy!
All nurseries must have a clear stratergy and approach to handling this sensitive subject and a basic level of awareness training is given to all new staff during their first week at Rum Tum’s. If, as a parent, you had a concern about a child in nursery, Hayley Martin-Burns co-ordinates Safeguarding Children issues and is happy to talk things through with you. However, it was also worth noting the local contact number for Essex referrals, 0845 6037627.
