Confidentiality Policy

 

The Pre-school/Club's work with children and families will sometimes bring us into contact with confidential information.

To ensure that all those using and working in the Pre-school/Club can do so with confidence, we will respect confidentiality in the following ways:

  • Parents will have ready access to the files and records of their own children but will not have access to information about any other child.
  • Staff will not discuss individual children, other than for purpose of curriculum planning/group management, with people other than the parents/carers of that child.
  • Information given by parents/carers to the Leader/keyworker will not be passed on to other adults without permission.
  • Issues to do with the employment of staff, whether paid or unpaid, will remain confidential to the people directly involved with making personnel decisions.
  • Any anxieties/evidence relating to a child's personal safety will be held in a confidential file and will not be shared within the group except with the child's keyworker, Leader and the Chair.
  • Students on recognised courses observing in the Pre-school/Club will be advised of our confidentiality policy and required to respect it.

All the undertakings above are subject to the paramount commitment of the Pre-school/ Club which is to the safety and well being of the child. Please also see our policy on child protection.
