All our practitioners, students and volunteers working with the children have an enhanced DBS check and do not work unsupervised until these are completed. We are required to follow procedures as laid down by the Bradford Safeguarding Children Board, which includes sharing concerns that we may have with Social Services and/or the Police. Please inform us of any accidents or injuries your child has sustained outside of nursery. If a child receives an injury outside nursery, parents are asked to give an indication of the cause; the details are recorded on an Existing Injury Form, which you will be asked to sign. This is normally retained in your child’s confidential file, unless any necessary action needs to be taken, or help sought.
Please read our full policy in our Downloads page.
Your Child’s Safety
To ensure your child’s safety whilst in our care, all external doors are locked and monitored by our staff. The outdoor area is enclosed with no access from outside – other than through our building. Each half-term, regular fire drills ensure staff and children are aware of the routine.
We operate a system whereby only named adults detailed on the admission form will be able to pick up. Your child will not be allowed to leave nursery with anyone who is not on the admission form.
Children will always have accidents and staff will fill out an accident form, no matter how small the incident and parents will be informed and asked to sign the form.
Should your child require any medication whilst they are at nursery, you will need to complete a medication form and ensure this is signed to give permission. Medication must be given to a member of staff and not left in your child’s bag. Should your child become ill whilst at nursery, we will endeavour to contact you or one of your emergency contacts to come and collect them. If your child is ill, he/she should stay at home and please telephone us to let us know. In the event of diarrhoea and sickness, children are not allowed back to nursery until 48 hours after the last bout.
A late collection fee of £5.00 for each 15 minutes or part thereof will be charged.
