Safeguarding and promoting welfare is everyone’s responsibility!

A range of posters have been developed by the Lincolnshire Children Safeguarding Board (LSCB) for you to highlight in your setting that we all have a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people – click on the link below and scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see the documents there to download.



The Birth to Five Service is an award winning and nationally recognised service offering a wide range of skills, expertise and experience across the early years’ sector.

The Birth to Five Service website offers guidance and advice on developing high quality early years provision and practice. As a Service, we passionately believe that the early years of a child’s life are vital. Children learn at such speed; devouring learning, delighting in new experiences and opportunities, and relishing exploration and experimentation.

We aim to continue to expand the range of information available, so, if you are an early years foundation stage practitioner, leader, head teacher or manager please bookmark this page and visit this site again soon!

If you require further information regarding specific programmes of support please contact the Service directly by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
