Safeguarding
  • The safety and wellbeing of each child is paramount!
  • We ensure that all venues are throughly risk assessed and monitored to ensure that they comply with health and safety requirements.
  • Staff are trained to recognise hazards and how to eliminate or control them.
  • You will easily recognise our team by their company uniform displaying our company logo and their company Id Badge.
  • Safeguarding children is at the heart of everything we do, to this end we have appointed a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) who is responsible for children's safety and wellbeing.
  • If you ever have a concern regarding the safety or wellbeing of our children, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead  Kelly Keeling – 02380455699
  • Only pre approved carers named on your registration records can collect your child. To add additional carers please contact us. People unknown to staff will be asked to prove their identity so please ensure that they bring a form of ID, they will also be asked to provide the password you recorded upon registration.

Ofsted Quote: "Safeguarding children is at the heart of everything that the staff do. All staff complete rigorous training, are very knowledgeable about how to protect children and keep them safe. If there are concerns about children's welfare, staff closely follow robust procedures to ensure they protect children from harm."

Changes of Collection Arrangements
  • Please make sure you provide us with the details of at least 2 emergency contacts. These people must be people that you authorise to collect your child.
  • These people need to be living locally or able to collect your child in an emergency.
  • We will only allow your child to be collected by someone other than those named on the child’s records if we have received prior consent by e-mail, by text message from the parent’s pre-registered contact number or verbally via the child’s parent/guardian. The person notifying the changes must provide us with the pre-registered password. Any changes notified will be recorded in the club diary.
  • If you wish to provide us with additional contacts/people who are authorised to collect your child, please supply us with an email detailing the full name and contact details of the person collecting so that we can add them to our list of authorised persons.
  • The person collecting must provide us with the pre-agreed password and a form of photographic ID for verification purposes.
  • Only club staff can answer the door or let anyone into the setting.
  • Staff will only allow access to individuals that they recognise and know are authorised to collect a child. 
  • A staff member who does not recognise an adult collecting a child will ask for the adult’s name and their relationship to the child. They will then politely ask the person to wait in reception or outside the setting.
  • Staff may call a child’s parents/carers to clarify any confusion or allay any concerns if necessary.  On occasions when parents/carers are aware that they will not be at home or in their usual place of work, they must inform a member of staff who will record how they can be contacted in the club diary.
  • Cover staff must authorise all collections by checking that the adult is on the authorised emergency contact record or that we have received authorisation from the child’s parents in accordance with clause 7d and 7e.
Late Collection
  • If you are going to be then you need to contact the staff at the setting your child attends to let them know.
  • We do understand that sometimes this is unavoidable but please make sure that you have a contingency plan in place. Some of our team use public transport to travel to and from work and as this is limited in some areas, late collection can mean that they are not getting home to their families until late into the evening. In addition to this, the relationship we have with site managers at each of our settings is vital to operation and if we are late out of the building, they have to stay on later in order to lock up, they are not paid for this and are not happy to do so, therefore please take all this into consideration.
  • Late collection charges will be charged as per published price list.
Absence
  • Parents/Guardians must notify the club and the school that your child attends if your child will not be attending a club session. This is important for your child’s safety. If your child is not going to attend a session, please let a member of the staff know before the session starts.
  • Please do not assume that if school personnel know of the absence of a child, the club staff will know as well, as Creative Kidz Childcare Ltd is a is a totally separate organisation. Please call, text or email the club that your child attends.
  • If you need to leave a message, please request a call/text you back to ensure they have your message. Do not contact the Creative Kidz Childcare Ltd office to report absence as we may not be able to pass on the message to your child’s setting in time.
  • Parents/Guardians must notify the setting their child attends, as soon as possible if their child will not be attending i.e. going to friends for tea or staying behind for after school activities; as if the child does not arrive when expected we will then implement the missing child procedure.
  • If your child is attending a club or has a sporting event after school and will be late to the Creative Kidz Childcare Ltd, please notify our members of staff, as we have to use valuable time finding out the reason for the absence.

  • Factors taken into account may include, site conditions, weather conditions and road conditions reported by Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire County Council and information published on the Met Office website.
