Health and safety policy

It is the policy of the School to comply fully with the requirements of European Community Law, the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, and all other relevant statutory provisions. The School's Statement of Policy and Safety Arrangements can be found at Safety Policy| (PDF).

The School has a responsibility to provide a safe environment for your child and the Manager is responsible for health and safety matters concerning the nursery premises. All staff are aware of potential hazards within the nursery and the surrounding environment and actively protect children from hazards. We aim to provide all staff with first aid training. All accidents and any incidents are recorded in the Accident Report Book. All accidents are accurately notified to the parent/carer as soon as possible. Hygiene rules relating to bodily fluids are followed with particular care and all staff are aware of how infections can be transmitted.

In the nursery we aim to:

  1. Involve and motivate nursery staff in all matters concerning Health & Safety.
  2. Prevent accidents, injuries and ill-health and to identify and eliminate hazardous situations.
  3. Achieve a high standard of occupational health, safety, welfare and hygiene.
  4. Control situations likely to be hazardous to health and safety in the nursery or cause damage to persons or equipment.
  5. Provide a safe and healthy environment.
