At St. Thomas Centre Nursery School we follow the Procedures from Birmingham City Council and Birmingham Safeguarding Children's Board (BSCB) which includes the Government's PREVENT strategy.

St Thomas Centre Nursery is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care at all times.afeguarding children is a priority at this Nursery.


We value all of our children and families. We celebrate our rich cultural and religious diversity and promote mutual respect. We are an inclusive setting and our ethos and curriculum enables children to be independent learners- making choices and building strong relationships particularly with their peers. We encourage this by structuring the environment and timetable to enable individual, paired, small and large group activity. We have certain rules that children and adults must follow. This enables a safe learning environment. All of these form our framework for promoting British values-democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faith and beliefs



Safeguarding means proactively seeking to involve the whole community in keeping Children safe and promoting their welfare.


Child protection is a central part of safeguarding and promoting welfare. It is the process of protecting individual children identified as either suffering or at risk of suffering significant harm as a result of abuse or neglect.
