Staff team

Staff are compassionate about children’s well-being and give support to children who need extra reassurance. Children get to know their key person and other staff well, and are confident to explore and investigate their surroundings. 2016 Ofsted report

At Honeycroft we provide a friendly and safe environment for all children to develop and thrive by selecting staff who embody the Honeycroft spirit. Our diverse and capable staff are supported by a group of exceptional trustees.

Every member of staff undergoes a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service checking for disbarring or a criminal record) when they start at Honeycroft, which is reinforced with references. In addition, all staff attend regular training to keep knowledge and skills up to date and support ongoing development. Training includes annual Safeguarding and Paediatric first aid session
