Staff ratio Policy
We provide a staffing ratio in line with the Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage to ensure that children have sufficient individual attention and to guarantee care and education of a high quality. Our staff are appropriately qualified and we carry out checks for enhanced criminal records and barred list checks through the Disclosure and Barring Service in accordance with statutory requirements.
The minimum staffing ratios are:
➢ 1:3 children under 2 years
➢ 1:4 children aged 2 years
➢ 1:8 children aged 3years+
Our management team is qualified from level 3 and up to NQT.
➢ The manager, staff manager and account manager are supernumerary so they can be called upon to provide cover.
➢ We hold half termly staff meetings and planning sessions to undertake curriculum planning and to discuss children’s progress.
