Parents

Safety

From our front door onwards

You want your child to be safe, and they will be from the moment they walk through the door into any of our nurseries. All our nurseries have secure entry systems, most commonly with a password- or fingerprint-operated keypad. This ensures that only staff and parents or carers can come in – and the children can’t slip out. Everyone else has to ring the bell and be checked by a member of staff.

Safety and training

What’s more, all our staff (with the exception of our apprentices, who are active learners, and one or two special cases) are qualified to at least Level 3 – many have a Level 4 or 5 and a growing number have a degree. But, as your child is important and our practitioners are committed to their work, they all continue training, particularly in key areas affecting your child’s safety and continuing good health:

British Values

All our Early Years settings have to be evidencing how we actively promote British values and the DfE have set out the guidelines as stated below; DfE British values are described as: “Fundamental British values first set out in the Government’s Prevent strategy, are democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. The promotion of fundamental British values will be reflected in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and exemplified in an age-appropriate way through practice guidance”

The revised Prevent duty guidance for England and Wales was first published in 2015 and is embedded in our Safeguarding policy. All staff are trained in spotting signs of people including children who are being drawn into terrorism and what to do. The Prevent Duty Guidance states Early years providers’ are subject to the duty to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’ (HM Government 2015)

The importance of ratios

We all know you need eyes in the back of your head when looking after small children. We can’t promise that, but we always aim to exceed the ratios laid out in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the national curriculum for under-fives:

Having a high number of staff protects your child wherever they might be. There is never a chance of your child playing outside unsupervised. It also means that, in some of our nurseries, if anyone falls ill, we rarely employ agency workers. Instead, we aim to ensure your child is always surrounded by familiar faces.
