Child Protection Policy

In Belmont Nursery School by providing a happy, secure and supportive environment the children will be encouraged to progress at their own level toward independent learning.


Belmont Nursery School aims to establish a caring environment within which the academic, personal, social and spiritual potential of each child will be developed.  The pastoral dimension permeates all school activities.  

We have a primary responsibility for the care, welfare and safety of the pupils in our charge and we will carry out this duty through our pastoral care policy which aims to provide a caring, supportive and safe environment.


Our Child Protection Policy is based on the following Principles:

  • The child’s welfare must always be paramount.

  • Children must always have a right to be heard, to be listened to and to be taken seriously.

  • Parents/carers have a right to respect but a proper balance must be struck between ensuring this and protecting children.

  • Every child has the fundamental right to be safe from harm and have proper care given to their physical, emotional and spiritual well being.
