Mobile Phone Policy
We believe our staff should be completely attentive during their hours of working, to ensure all children in the nursery receive good quality care and education. This is why mobile phones are not to be used during working hours.
Staff must adhere to the following:
Mobile phones are not to be turned on during working hours
Mobile phones can only be used on a designated break and then this must be away from the children, for example in the office or consultation room
Staff may give out the nursery phone number to be used in case of emergency
Mobile phones should be stored safely in your designated locker or in the office
No photographs should be taken of the children on any phones, either personal or nursery owned
If any of the above points are not followed then the member of staff involved will face disciplinary action which could result in dismissal.
We must also safeguard the children in our care by ensuring that parents and visitors do not use their mobile phones whilst on the premises. Any parent or visitor caught using their mobile phone on the premises will be asked to switch it off immediately. They may be asked to leave the premises and further action may be sought.
