Confidentiality

I am registered with Data protection, Registration reference: ZA039401

All information on children, families and anyone working w
ith me is kept securely and treated in confidence. Information will only be shared if the parents/carers/co-workers give their permission or there appears to be a child protection issue.


I maintain a record of parent(s)’ and/or emergency contact details, the contact details of the child’s GP and appropriate signed consent forms.

If a child is identified as a child in need (section 17 of the Children Act 1989) I will, normally with the parent’s permission, give appropriate information to referring agencies.

I expect parents to inform me of any changes in the child’s home circumstances, care arrangements or any other change which may affect the child’s behaviour such as a new baby, parents’ separation, divorce or any bereavement.

Parents have the right to inspect all records about their child at any time.

All significant incidents are recorded in an incident book and will be shared and discussed with parents so that together we can work to resolve any issues.

I keep records with name, address, contract, and fee due and paid on my computer.

To publicise my business I have this website, a blog and a Facebook page.
I don't put your children's photo without your express consent.
