    How do toilet locks fit anyway? If i did have them could older children access the toilet without me having to 'unlock' it first?

    I suppose you could fit a little sliding lock across the inside top of the door for older children's (and your family's) privacy, but if there is a risk of a younger child getting stuck, Ofsted wouldn't like it...

    Oh my!!! I have just clicked what you mean...i thought toilet locks were locks on the actual toilet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And you were all talking about locks on the toilet door!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I won't have locks on the doors, it would be too dangerous.
    Now, do i have this right now or are there other locks that go on the actual toilet?

    How funny!!!

    It's the meter that's the risk... which is no longer a risk as you have a lock on the meter door.... not the toilet seat!

    I have a lock ( I wont say where) that can be opened from the outside, ofsted were fine with it, it also means I can lock door from outside to keep little ones out!

    Dont stress, your pre reg visit is to help point out bits like this, most health and safety is common sense you just have to show how you would keep kids safe, supervision is most important in all things.
