Peel Common Nursery and Infant School and Hampshire County Council are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.

Our safeguarding policies and procedures ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, race, religion or belief, has a right to equal protection from harm. Safeguarding is the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.


What is Safeguarding?

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • Ensure children have safe and effective care
  • Take action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
  • Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm


What parents can do if they have a concern

If you have any concerns about a child’s welfare, please talk directly to one of our school Designated Safeguarding Leads. If you have a safeguarding concern or allegation related to the leadership of the school, you can contact the Local Authority Designated Officers (LADO): 01962 876364
