Induction Policy


Recommended Posts


We aim to minimise the hazards and risks to enable the children to thrive in a healthy and safe environment and to encourage children to learn about risk-taking in a secure environment. Our induction training for staff and volunteers includes a clear explanation of health and safety issues so that all adults are able to adhere to our policy and understand their shared responsibility for health and safety. The induction training covers matters of employee well-being, including safe lifting and the storage of potentially dangerous substances.


Staff induction includes an awareness of the importance of confidentiality in the role of the key person.


Any Job vacancies will be advertised and interviews for candidates will take place. New employees will follow an induction procedure and will be supervised until they are confident in their role.


Each child is appointed a Key Person who is responsible for the induction and monitoring of that child’s progress. The Key Person will regularly report to the Manager and parents/carers.



 We have an induction plan for all new staff, which includes the following:

 Introductions to all staff and volunteers, including management committee members.

 Familiarising with the building, health and safety and fire procedures.

 Ensuring our policies and procedures have been read and are carried out.

 Introduction to parents, especially parents of allocated key children where appropriate.

 Familiarising staff with confidential information where applicable in relation to any key children.

 Details of the tasks and daily routines to be completed.

 The induction period lasts two weeks. The manager inducts new staff and volunteers. The chairperson or senior manager inducts new managers.

 During the induction period, the individual must demonstrate understanding of and compliance with policies, procedures, tasks and routines.

 Successful completion of the induction forms part of the probationary period.



Is that any help?
