Children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure, when their individual needs are met and when they have positive relationships with the adults caring for them.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements are designed to support providers in creating settings which are welcoming, safe and stimulating, and where children are able to enjoy learning through play, to grow in confidence and to fulfil their full potential.

The Proprietor and the Senior Leadership team wish to make it clear that Safeguarding is at the forefront of all practice at Storybook Montessori and provides safeguarding and child protection training when staff are appointed and regular, at least annual, refresher training thereafter to keep their knowledge up to date.

At Storybook Montessori, extremist religious views and partisan political views when teaching or caring for children will not be tolerated. All members of staff are expected to offer a balanced presentation of views and opinions and to promote British values.
