Our Staff

All of our Staff and Committee members are CRB checked by the Criminal Records Bureau, which "provides access to criminal record and other relevant information to employers and licensing authorities in England and Wales. The results of the checks carried out by the CRB help organisations make more informed decisions when recruiting people to work with children and the vulnerable".

All staff have gained a NVQ or QCF qualification, are trained in First Aid and have SAFE (child protection training) for children.  They've also each undergone 'Step On' training (renewable every 2 years) on behaviour management.  There is also a setting SENCO (special educational needs coordinator) who can help with any special requirements your child may have.
