Parents have access to files and records of their own children.
Staff, students & volunteers will not discuss individual children with people other than staff, parents, guardians or professionals involved with the child.
Information given by parents to the pre-school staff will be treated with respect and sensitivity.
Any anxieties or evidence relating to a child’s personal safety will be kept in a confidential file and will only be shared with other pre-school staff and if needed the Early Years Improvement Officer.
Students on placement, temporary staff or new staff, parents & volunteers at pre-school will read a copy of the confidentiality policy.
Students, parents & volunteers helping in the setting are required to abide by this and sign the paper copy.
Any concerns with parents regarding incidents with children should be discussed privately.
