Safeguarding (Child Protection)


Safeguarding children is everyone’s business


The designated lead for Safeguarding at Freeland Pre-school is Jessica Williams (Manager).  If you have any safeguarding concerns about a child please speak to Jessica in the first instance. In her absence you can discuss your concerns with Elisabeth Ball (Deputy Manager).

You can also contact Ofsted on 0300 123 1231.



If you have a concern regarding a member of staff you can raise this immediately with the designated lead, however, if this is not appropriate, your concerns should be put in writing to the Chairperson of the Management Committee. Please refer to our Whistle-blowing Policy for further information (available under Policies Link).


The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is a multi-agency team which identifies risks to vulnerable adults and children. If you have a concern for a child you can call them on: 0345 050 7666


If you are worried about a child you can also contact the NSPCC:
