Clever Clogs Pre-school 

1.9 Maintaining children’s safety and security on premises

Policy statement

We maintain the highest possible security of our premises to ensure that each child is safely cared for during their time with us. 

Children’s personal safety

  • Adults do not normally supervise children on their own.
  • We ensure all employed staff have ‘enhanced disclosure’ checks with the Disclosure and Barring services (DBS).
  • All children are supervised by adults at all times.
  • Whenever children are on the premises at least two adults are present.
  • We carry out risk assessment to ensure children are not made vulnerable within any part of our premises, nor by any activity.


  • Systems are in place for the safe arrival and departure of children.
  • The times of the children’s arrivals and departures are recorded in the daily register.
  • The arrival and departure times of volunteers and visitors are recorded. Identification badges are requested to be shown when entering the setting.
  • Our systems prevent unauthorised access to our premises.
  • Our systems prevent children from leaving our premises unnoticed.
  • The personal possessions of staff and volunteers are securely stored during sessions.
