    Personally my parents never want a copy and when I have handed them over they have put them on the side and left them there.

    Anyway, I would write a copy and get parents to sign both and attach your copy to the last page of your existing book.

    I keep all the copies that parents never take in a plastic file and keep it with all my other record keeping stuff, if they ever want it then it is there for them to have then - not that anyone does. I expect if it was a more serious accident then they would take the copy.

    I don't know what the 'legal' requirements are about that, hopefully, somebody will enlighten us.

    I have a bit on the bottom of my accident forms that says "parent has/has not received a copy of this form" - if parents don't want a copy that covers me as they have signed to say so.

    But if it's a head bump I would give out a head bump letter and also a copy of the accident form in case they needed to go to hospital later

    Iv attached the form I use and keep one per child in their file so only their parents see it. I don't give a copy to parents unless they request one and I would keep this form for 21 years

    yes Ofsted have been fine with it so far. Last inspection was last year and they were ok with it and never asked if I gave parents a copy. My development worker has said this is ok aswel. The fact the parent signs it means there is proof they have seen it and you need to keep this for 21 years as the child can take you to court up to 21 years after the accident....crazy.

    I use all my own forms and store on computer and print off all that I need to make a child's profile when im expecting a new parent visit...this way they can be updated when needed and no paper wasted

    Thanks for those form ideas, I've used my last ncma form this week so I need more.
    In fact I ordered what I thought were the forms I needed from ncma but they are totally different
