Our policies are constantly reviewed and are updated annually to ensure we maintain our high standards of care. Copies of all policies are available at Pre-school for parents to read - please ask a member of staff or the Pre-School Chairperson. Some of our key policies are available below.
Maytree Pre-school is part of Operation Encompass. Operation Encompass is a police and education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people who experience Domestic Violence and Abuse. Children were recognised as victims of domestic abuse in their own right in the 2021 Domestic Abuse Bill. Operation Encompass means that the police will share information with our setting about all police attended Domestic Abuse incidents which involve any of our children PRIOR to the start of the next pre-school day. Our Key Adult (DSL) has completed the online Key Adult training they will cascade the principles of Operation Encompass to all DDSL’s and all other staff. All staff are trained in how to identify Domestic Violence and Abuse and how we can support our children who are experiencing Domestic Violence and Abuse.
