Safety and Security
It is critical for our parents and carers that they are able to leave their children in a secure and safe place. Red Bus takes security extremely seriously and has a number of measures in place to ensure your children are safe at all times.
At our settings we use a fob security system. Our front door is locked and can only be opened by a member of staff or parent with a designated fob which allows access through the front door only. Each family will receive one fob, if you need to access the building without the fob a member of staff can let you in the nursery providing you identify yourself. A second tier security measure is in place into each area of the setting.
- Staff. We train our staff in the absolute importance of security and they are fully versed in our safety and security policies which are refreshed regularly. Our staff are trained to pick up on anything unusual and to report it immediately. Everyone has the right to challenge anything they see.
- Child collection policy. We careful register the individuals who you approve to collect your child. There are rigorous security measures in place should we receive a call about adding someone to the list that day, or should someone arrive unexpectedly at the setting to collect your child. If we have any uncertainty at all, we will not allow the child to leave with that person.
- Open environment. We have deliberately designed our settings as ‘open’ so that everything that is going on within the setting is visible to others, without detracting from a child’s privacy. We want to know who and what is happening in our setting at all times.
The safeguarding of your child is the most important responsibility we have whilst your child is in our care.
