A CHARTER FOR CHILDREN

We pride ourselves on prioritising the happiness and wellbeing of the children in our care.  Our Charter for Children can be located using the link on the right hand side of this page.

 

ADDITIONAL NEEDS

Children with additional needs, like all other children, may be admitted after full consultation between parents/carers, staff, referral scheme coordinators and other relevant agency workers who can share information to ensure we are able to meet your child's individual needs.  Our Additional Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy can be located on the right hand side of this page.

 

SAFEGUARDING

We aim to provide an environment in which children are safe from harm and abuse and in which all suspicions of abuse will be responded to in accordance with the All Wales Child Protection Procedures (2008) and the local procedures of the Vale of Glamorgan Local Safeguarding Children Board as mandated by Working Together to Safeguarding Children (2004).  Our Child Protection Policy and Procedure can be found on the right hand side of this page.
