    Angel/Sarah, please can you point me to the bit in the childcare register where it says about procedure for allegations against staff, I keep reading the requirements (2010) but can't see it - is there an updated list of requirements? I have it in my policy anyway, but just wanted to check it was right. Thanks

    • Safeguarding / Child Protection policy and procedures - for the Childcare Register it must include the procedures to be followed in the event of an allegation being made against a member of staff. For the EYFS 2012 it must include information about mobile phone and camera use.

    Default Mobile phone/cameras

    Im aware we need to link a mobile phone/camera policy into our Safeguarding one, but to be honest Im not sure what to put!
    I know why its not allowed in Nurseries etc (mobiles etc) but my mobile and camera are always around for obs etc.
    My cm friend has linked hers to not allowing her older after schoolies to use them in her home, but I dont take older children

    Any advise or links please.

    Hi Angel and Sarah, thanks for this!

    I am all up together with the policies and procedures now, but need to ask a question if I may!

    Where it says I MUST inform parents of my registration on the voluntary part of the childcare register, how would I word that and where?

    I have in my introduction letter that I am Ofsted registered, but thats all! Should I change it to 'I am Ofsted registered on the compulsory and voluntary childcare registers'? or words to that effect? Could some one good with words help me out here please?

    The other thing is the giving details of another childminder who could care for mindees if I'm ill. I gave these details out to all my parents in a newsletter ages ago when I found one and forgot all about it! Should I do a whole new policy regarding that or just tag it on the end of my 'emergency regarding the childminder' one?

    This thread has been updated to include new information about policies and procedures from Ofsted.

    This is the latest Ofsted factsheet clarifying the requirements -

    Ofsted | Factsheet: childcare - Records, policies and notification requirements of the Early Years Register

    You will also find more information in this factsheet -

    Ofsted | Factsheet: childcare - Requirements for written documents: childminders delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage

    I hope you find it useful
