Biometric Fingerprint Entry System

We have a biometric fingerprint entry system which allows parents to gain access to and from nursery supporting our ‘open door’ policy whilst safeguarding the security of the nursery.

Arrival & Departures

Parents sign the daily attendance book on arrival and departure with their child’s name, time and parent’s signature and named person who will collect the child.

Cameras & Recordings

Photographs or recordings taken of children in our nursery are only with prior permission. This is gained when each child is registered and is updated on a regular basis to ensure that this permission is still valid.

Mobile Phones

We have a mobile phone free environment and all staff mobile phones are stored securely and not accessed during their working hours. Parents and visitors are also required to adhere to our policy.
