Child Protection

At Hazeldene Family Centre, we take the care, welfare and protection of our children very seriously. We believe all children have a right to feel safe within the family centre, home and community.

Within our Family Centre we strive to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment for our children, which promotes inclusion and achievement.

All staff have a  professional responsibility to take action if we have reason to believe a child is suffering, or is at risk of abuse.

Our Child Protection policy sets out what we will do if we have reason to believe a child is being abused or is at risk of abuse, either within the home or the community. The policy is designed to ensure that children get the help they need when they need it.

Every staff member undergoes a minimum of one child protection training activity every session. Many of our staff are more extensively trained in specific areas of child protection to support and identify potential child protection concerns.

All schools and Early Learning and Childcare  settings in East Renfrewshire have comprehensive pupil support systems in place and we work closely with our partners in Social Work, Health and the Police.

The Child Protection Co-ordinator for the family centre is  

Karen Shepherd, Head Teacher

If you wish any further information or a copy of the Family Centre policy, please contact the Family Centre office.

If you wish to  discuss this important matter further, please speak with the head teacher.
