Staff Behaviour Policy

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has a Pre-School Staff Behaviour Policy they could share so I can get some ideas of where to start. I have looked at several school ones but they don't seem appropriate to an early years setting. I have been updating policies for the past 4 hours and my brain is going numb.

Thanks in advance

That's put my mind at rest! Yes we have all different policies which cover these things and of course in Safeguarding too. It is just another chore to try and bring all these things together. Do OFSTED imagine we are sitting twiddling our thumbs, looking for things to keep us busy?

Safeguarding, I would advice calling "Safeguarding - Child Protection Policy" just because the "Inspecting safeguarding in early years, education and skills settings" revise sheet August 2016 suggests this. I guess this is where you found the "Staff Behaviour Policy" idea? Although the Staff Behaviour Policy might be more geared towards Schools??

 

I have also been looking for one :)

I'm going to make a folder called 'Staff behaviour policy' - I'm going to put my policies directly relating to staff in it e.g confidentiality policy, whistle blowing, professional conduct. I'm going to 'cross reference' other policies that are also included in the safeguarding policies. It won't be a new policy in itself - it will be a new folder. I'm going to do the same for safeguarding - which will be 'child protections and safeguarding'. In fact, I think I will end up with 3 folders 1. Staff behaviour, 2. Child protection and safeguarding, 3. Teaching and Learning. I think all my policies will fall into one of those categories. I will be careful about cross referencing because obviously some things could go into more than one folder. Anyone else got any ideas?

When I had a reception class and didn't necessarily need separate policies to meet the requirements but had to be certain that whole school policies covered them I did something similar. I took each of the statutory requirements and referenced which whole school policy it would be covered in.

That makes sense - I think it's helpful to go through the policies anyway to make sure they are fresh in mind at the beginning of the school year. We review all our policies annually and so this will serve well for that purpose!

Found one that I have adapted slightly and added it to my number 63 spot in our P+P's booklet!! Yes it basically repeats much of the staff conduct and many other policies but it's worth having I feel with it being mentioned in the new Inspection guidance.

 

If anybody wants to take a look or to maybe use it themselves here is the link to our recently updated P+P's - hopefully some might find them useful.

You have some telephone numbers and names of staff in here.

Thanks Cait, I was thinking the same thing when I added to website. The staff names are fine and the telephone numbers are ok to be shared. They are work mobiles and not personal contact numbers.

 

Thank you for your concern, it is appreciated.
