Knowsley Safeguarding Children Board has published advice for parents who are considering childcare options, particularly over the summer months. Many children benefit from participation in a great range of clubs, sports and activities held out of school, in the evenings and weekends. Other children also access private tuition or lessons. All of these activities bring great benefits to children and young people but those providing activities must assure and demonstrate to parents that their children will be kept safe.
To help parent’s make an informed choice. Knowsley Safeguarding Children Board has published a list of the ‘right questions’ for parents to ask providers before allowing their child to participate.
