(Expressing concern about a member of staff)
If you are concerned about a child at the pre-school and/or feel uncomfortable about how a staff or committee member acts or speaks with the children, you must follow the procedures the pre-school has in place and tell the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), Maria Hill. If you feel unhappy speaking to her, then speak to the Deputy DSLs (Wendy Perkins and Pal Bains) or the Committee Chairperson, Angela Beckett.
If you are unhappy with the response you receive, you must contact both CADS, as above, and then contact Ofsted:
tel: 0300 123 3155 email: email@example.com
If Medway Council’s LADO is unavailable, you should inform Ofsted of this.
