We routinely collect information as to the child's GP when they register. Is this a legal requirement under the EYFS? If so, would a homeopathic practitioner be acceptable to Ofsted? Presumably, it's within a parent's right not to have a doctor...

That's an interesting one! I have looked through the documentation and there is nothing that specifically states that you must have the name and contact details of a GP. This is what it seems to state


Providers must obtain necessary information from parents in advance of a child being admitted to the provision, including:

  • emergency contact numbers;
  • the child's special dietary requirements, preferences or food allergies the child may have;
  • the child's special health requirements;
  • information about who has legal contact with the child; and who has parental responsibility for the child.


Written parental permission must be requested, at the time of the child's admission to the provision, to the seeking of any necessary emergency medical advice or treatment in the future.


It also states


Providers must record the following information for each child in their care:

  • full name;
  • date of birth;
  • the name and address of every parent and carer who is known to the provider;
  • which of these parents or carers the child normally lives with;
  • emergency contact details of the parents and carers.


Anyone else find anything?
