Incident Book


 Share

Recommended Posts

We have the PLA Incident Book and it doesn't have a space for a parent to sign when you have told them their child has 'created' an incident.

 

Question: Is this right, that the parent doesn't sign?

 

Our Incident book is that old that it may have changed, and in which case I need to update ours!

For this reason I went and devised my own. We now have accident and incident forms in one folder as I felt the one we had didn't have enough room to write things down. I am sure parents have to sign to say they have read it. Unless a parent refuses to sign it

I think it is best if parents do sign - it shows that you take communication seriously, that you have a system of logging important communication. It also provides protection against allegations that you are not sharing information.

Definitely parent's should sign - I've been looking at other settings Ofsted reports, and the fact that parents are not informed about accidents (in that they haven't signed accident form) is often mentioned as a negative.

Our parents sign both incident and accident reports, and they don't get collated and filed until a signature is aquired , the whole idea of them is for clarity and to make parenst aware of things that have occured with/to thier child whether in Nursery or elsewhere so why wouldn't you get them to sign ? :o
