The National Child Safeguarding Programme; Early Learning and Care
If your service would like some support with updating your child safeguarding statement, please get in touch with our team here in Roscommon CCC at 0949622540 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The National Child Safeguarding Programme; Early Learning and Care is the only Tusla approved, Early Learning and Care sector specific Child Safeguarding training programme. We attach the updated Child Safeguarding Statement Template and accompanying Information Sheet for Early Learning and Care services. This resource has been developed by the national children first coordinating committee in conjunction with the Tusla Child Safeguarding Statement Compliance Unit and will help services to develop a strong, robust Child Safeguarding Statement that is individual and unique to their service. The template and accompanying information sheet outlines the exact steps that services are required to follow to develop their Child Safeguarding Statement.
A Child Safeguarding Statement is a written statement that specifies the service being provided and the principles and procedures to be observed in order to ensure, as far as practicable, that a child availing of the service is safe from harm. Upon completion, the Child Safeguarding Statement must be shared with all staff members, displayed in a prominent place in the service and made available to parents and guardians, Tusla and members of the public upon request.
