Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility.

Protecting children against harm, both physical and emotional is of paramount importance at our setting.

The designated safeguarding lead at Treetops at Sutton is Helen Morris. If you have any concerns please make contact in person, by phone or email.

We ensure the safety of children in our care by having robust and up to date policies and procedures in place to enable us to act upon any concerns we may have. We update policies and procedures as required in line with regularly received guidance from the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership, the NSPCC, and North Yorkshire County Council. We ensure that all staff members receive child protection training upon recruitment which is updated regularly.

We ensure the suitability of our staff by undertaking enhanced DBS checks, as well as securing appropriate references. We evaluate the suitability of our staff continuously through regular supervision and appraisals.
