Age Of Person Collecting?

Recommended Posts

Our policy states that no person under the 18 can collect from the nursery, however, i cannot find this in the standards.

 

Does anyone know whether this is statutory or not?

 

We have a parent who wants her niece to collect, who is 17, just not really sure where we stand legally!

 

Any help would be appreciated!!

not sure if it is statutory but it is in our policies too!

 

bit hard though cos one of our parents is only 17.. :o

 

If it is parts of your policy I don't think it matters whether it is statutory. You have a duty of care until the children are passed over to a responsible adult (18?).

 

Sorry can't be of more help.

In school's there is no legislation - we were having a discussion about it tonight - but we use our professional judgement. Obviously our children are older so it is probably different but we have lots of children picked up by older brother's, sister's and babysitter's from the next door secondary school - some of which are definitely younger than 16.
