Safeguarding and Protecting Children


Every child deserves to learn and develop in an environment that is both safe and secure, which promotes health and wellbeing. By following the requirements detailed in our Safeguarding and Protecting Children policy, Kidspiration offers an enabling, high quality, environment for children where risks are minimised and well managed, and children are protected from harm and abuse.


Our Safeguarding and Protecting children policy is available to view at any time. There is a copy located in the cloakroom. We also have a Safeguarding display board which details how we support children and families and our responsibilities.


Darren Elliott and Rebecca Elliott are the designated safeguarding Officers at Kidspiration. The senior level 3 practitioner will take on this role in the event that both designated Officers are unavailable. These people work together to make informed decisions. At least one of the designated safeguarding persons are available at all times when Kidspiration is open.


If you are a member of the public and are concerned about the safety of a child you should call Children’s Social Work Services:

Office hours (9.00am – 5.00pm) on 0113 3760336

Out of Office hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) 0113 5350600


If you think a child is immediate danger call the police on 999 out of office hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays).
