Pre-school is prepared to administer medication with regard to life threatening conditions and written information will be obtained from the Parent, giving clear instructions of the dosage, administration of medication and permission for a member of staff to follow those instructions. I.e. inhalers, epipens
To avoid risk of infection, we ask you to keep your child away from pre-school if he/she has any of the following:
* A rash, until, he/she has been cleared by the Doctor.
* Sickness or diarrhoea within 48 hours.
* A very bad cough or cold.
* Conjunctivitis, until he/she has been diagnosed by the Doctor.
* Any other infectious illness.
Please advise pre-school immediately of any infectious illnesses.
Runwell Village Pre-School has a strict policy that under no circumstances should any child, individual or family be excluded from pre-school or activities on the grounds of age, gender, sexuality, class, family status, means, disability, colour, ethnic origin, culture, religion or belief. We ensure that all who wish to work in or volunteer to help in pre-school have an equal opportunity to do so.
We operate a Key worker system within pre-school. Each member of staff, referred to as an ‘Auntie’ or ‘Uncle’, is responsible for a small group of children. Within the setting she/he will keep their records, share snack time with them and be your first point of contact if you wish to see your child’s records or discuss their development. However, children are encouraged to interact with all members of staff.
Runwell Village Pre-School provides an environment in which children are safe from abuse and in which any suspicion of abuse is promptly and appropriately responded to. We are legally obliged to inform Children’s Social Care Department of any suspected abuse. All such investigations will be kept strictly confidential. We work in line with the guidance and procedures of the relevant Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB).
