Haven, Our Safeguarding Puppet


We are excited to introduce our new safeguarding puppet, Haven. The children have been introduced to Haven during group time and he is a friendly face to help the children learn about keeping safe.  Haven is used during nursery to highlight when children are learning about something that will help them keep safe.  Haven aims to increase children’s voice within the safeguarding team and to support our children to make a link between what they are learning and safety. Haven will feature as a regular part of our curriculum. Haven will have a presence online on our class dojo page, during group times and have a keeping safe column in our nursery newsletter.
