Confidentiality Policy

Our work with children sometimes brings us into contact with confidential information. To ensure that all those using and working in the Nursery can do so with confidence, we will respect confidentiality in the following ways:

  • Parents will only have access to records of their own children
  • Staff will not discuss individual children other than for the purpose of curriculum planning or Nursery management with people other than the parent or carer of that child
  • Information given by parents/carers to supervisor will not be passed on to other adults working at Little Tinkers or outside without permission. However, by law certain information must be passed on to Social services.
  • Parents and staff failing to show regard for confidentiality will be liable to disciplinary action under the provisions of the Parent and Staff Disciplinary Procedures Policy.
