Early Years & Childcare
Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership (SSP) must ensure all providers claiming early education funding complete the Safeguarding Self-Assessment document. Failure to return this document to Suffolk County Council will result in a delay to receiving your grant funding and ultimately your ability to claim funding in the future. The template has been cross referenced to key documents to assist you in completing the sections.

Early Years and Childcare Providers Safeguarding Training
Providers should be confident in their understanding and implementation of all the safeguarding and welfare requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework 2017. (Please note that although the framework refers to LSCB, all LSCBs have now been replaced with Safeguarding Partnerships).
When selecting training you must ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of Suffolk LSCB’s safeguarding processes and procedures. Suffolk County Council’s Early Years and Childcare Service offers the following safeguarding training which is endorsed by Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership and is specific to early years and childcare practitioners (pre-school playgroups, out of school clubs, day nurseries and childminders).
The above SSP endorsed Safeguarding training for early years and childcare providers is available on: www.suffolkcpd.co.uk
