Safeguarding is given the highest priority at Talbot Heath. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children and young people in our care. Safeguarding is rooted in providing an environment in which children and young people feel secure and happy and in which their individual needs are met. Talbot Heath follows the procedures of the Bournemouth and Poole Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).
