Clever Clogs Pre-school
Clever Clogs Preschool promotes a “Culture of safety” in which both children and staff are protected from abuse, harm and distress. We have a clear policy on the acceptable use of mobile phones that is understood by staff and parents. Key principles are:
Staff use of mobile phones
Personal mobile phones belonging to members of staff must be kept on a specified shelf or in handbags in the setting.
If a member of staff needs to make an urgent personal call they can use their own mobile phone within the kitchen area next door, or if that is in use, outside, but the manager/deputy manager must be informed first.
If a member of staff needs to keep their mobile phone to hand for a family emergency or similar, permission must be obtained from the Manager or deputy.
Visitors' use of mobile phones
Parents and all other visitors must not use their mobile phones within the setting. Notices are displayed around the classroom to verify this.
An exception may be granted at the settings concerts; all parents will be asked their permission before the concert begins and if all parents are in agreement an exception will be made.
This policy was adopted by Clever Clogs Preschool.
