Pimms o'clock?

Thanks for that. Can I just ask about the need for staff behaviour policies. We have separate policies that cover code of conduct, alcohol, drugs, smoking etc. Does anyone have a staff behaviour policy that they can share with me?

Does someone sat in an office at Ofsted HQ think 'Hey these people don't have enough to worry about with just over a week to the start of the new school year, let's throw something else at them'. Ggggrrrrr

 

I don't have a separate FGM policy Cait, I added a paragraph (along with prevent) to my safeguarding/CP policy, but now am wondering if it reads like a need to revert back to separate policies for safeguarding and CP and include 'accidental' bullying eg a child swipes another just because they can...not because they set out to bully the other child....(not that I can remember which part made me think that...it's so flipping long)

 

The 2 year training and annual updates needs clarifying ( I think school leads are 2yrs already) how much more pressure will that put on everyone, it's hard enough finding local training 3 yearly, I had a couple of staff do the online Virtual college updates, which are quite good but still £30 a time + a couple of hours overtime each :-(

I was interested in the requirement to have a designated lead on duty at all times and wondering what those of you already do, especially in day nurseries where you might have shifts each day? Do you already have more than one designated lead so that you are covered at all times or will this mean a rethink of rotas, training etc?

 

Just curious by the way.

Just by chance this is something that we have started to do - this year my deputy has also now now been on training as 'Designated Lead' - this because I wasn't happy that the brief online training she had previously undertaken was 'sufficient'. All very useful, however, as with everything the cost is prohibitive at £100.......i.e. we have both updated this year and this has cost £200 that's a considerable amount of money for a small group like mine......

We have 3 trained and aim to have 2 on duty as much as possible, you never know what's going to come through and to have two to go through it and support each other I feel is good. However we are lucky to have excellent safeguarding training and free basic online training in our LA if it was different I might run it differently.
