Supervision of Visitors

 

 

EYFS: 3.62

 

At Moulton Nursery School & After School Club we aim to protect the children in our care at all times. This includes making sure any visitors to the setting are properly identified and supervised.

 

All visitors must sign the visitors’ book on arrival and departure. Where applicable, visitors’ identity should be checked, e.g. Ofsted inspectors or colleagues attending in a professional capacity such as speech and language therapists. Visitors are informed of any relevant policies including the fire evacuation procedure and mobile phone, camera and other recording devices policy including use of smartwatches where applicable.   

 

All visitors are given and should wear a visitor’s lanyard to identify themselves to staff and parents within the setting. A member of staff must accompany visitors in the setting at all times while in the building; at no time should a visitor be left alone with a child unless under specific circumstances arranged previously with the manager.

 

Security

  • Staff must check the identity of any visitors they do not recognise before allowing them into the setting. Visitors to the setting must be recorded in the Visitors’ Book and accompanied by a member of staff at all times while in the building

  • All external doors must be kept locked at all times and external gates closed. All internal doors and gates must be kept closed to ensure children are not able to wander

  • Parents, visitors and students are reminded not to hold doors open or allow entry to any person, whether they know this person or not. Staff within the setting should be the only people allowing external visitors and parents entry to the setting

  • The setting will under no circumstances tolerate any form of harassment from third parties, including visitors, towards others, including children, staff members and parents. The police may be called in these circumstances.
