Dansol Policy Statement

Dansol Nursery & Primary School is dedicated to safeguarding all children from harm and providing them with a safe and nurturing environment. Our policy ensures that all children, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, or disability, are protected from all forms of harm.

Our Commitment to Child Protection

Recognizing & responding to child abuse & neglect

We train all staff to identify signs of abuse and neglect and have procedures in place to investigate and address concerns.

Promoting a culture of safety and respect

We create an atmosphere where children feel safe and respected and can report any abuse or neglect they experience.

Collaborating with other agencies to safeguard children

We work with entities such as the police and social services to protect children at risk.

Ensuring staff training in child protection

We have clear procedures for reporting and addressing child protection concerns.

We take specific steps to promote the welfare of our children, including providing a supportive environment and respecting their rights and participation in decision-making.

We emphasize that all staff, volunteers, and parents should be vigilant regarding signs of child abuse and neglect and report concerns promptly. Protecting children is a shared responsibility.

This policy is reviewed annually to maintain relevance and effectiveness. Our safeguarding and child protection system, working policy, and implementation processes align with local and international legal laws, such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Children. We also adhere to national laws, such as the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Child Rights Act, 2003.

Furthermore, our policy is in strict alignment with other core compliance documents and policies, including the Handbook for Learners, Anti-Bullying Policy, Health and Safety Policy, and Code of Good Conduct (Staff). These standards always prioritize the best interest of the child.

By adhering to these principles, Dansol Nursery & Primary School is committed to providing a friendly and protective environment for all children.
