Smoking, Drugs & Alcahol
I have a no smoking policy and no one is to smoke on my work premises in or outside of working hours. If you smoke at home can you please ensure that your child attends in smoke free clothing so that any odour does not affect other children and their families. I can provide you with information concerning smoking if you require. Thank you for your co-operation.
Drugs and Alcohol
I will ensure that neither I, nor anyone else who has contact with the children whilst at my setting, is under the influence of alcohol or any other drug which may affect our ability to care for children. I will ensure that alcohol and other drugs are kept safely away from children. I will not release the children into the care of any parent or carer who I have reason to believe is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If an alternative person is not available to collect the child then I will contact Social services following my safeguarding policy.
