FRUK All About Me

FRUK POLICIES 

  • FRUK are fully insured by MortonMichel.
  • Our first aid equipment is staffed and accessible.
  • We have a Health and Safety Policy in line with the Health and
    Safety Act, 1974.
  • Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work
    Regulations 1999, we undertake a risk assessment of the
    workplace and provide employees with adequate training.
  • Natural play resources, such as logs, branches, ropes etc.
    are risk assessed before play commences.
  • Our recruitment policy ensures that all staff are appropriately
    qualified, have relevant experience and are Disclosure and
    Barring Service checked.
  • We have permission from Hackney Council to operate within our site
    in South Millfields Park. Please note that our site is a public
    park and, in accordance with our lease agreement, we cannot
    lock the entrance gate, nor can we prevent members of the
    public from accessing or using the park. Our site is full fenced
    with only one entrance gate.
  • To ensure safety, should a member of the public enter the site,
    a staff member would introduce themselves and let them know
    that a group of young children are on site. If the member of
    public remained on site and the children’s safety was a
    concern, we would evacuate the site and roam with the
    children.
  • We practice our evacuation procedures regularly with the
    children and our staff work upon a strict ratio of one teacher to
    five children (as opposed to the standard nursery ratios of 1:8
    or 1:13 for those settings employing highly qualified teachers
    as we do). With one practitioner for every five children the
    children are always within immediate line of sight and proximity
    to a staff member, always within our boundary.
  • Further to this, a key safeguarding practise is the games we
    regularly play with the children such as“one-two- three where
    are you?” We also use a bird whistle, which the children
    understand means that they need to stop what they are doing
    and come to the teacher blowing the whistle. The children are
    also taught the importance of staying within our boundaries and
    with the group.
  • Risk assessments and safety sweeps are carried on our site prior to the arrival of children each day. Risks such as loose branches and animal faeces are addressed before the children arrive on site. Any dangerous waste/rubbish found is removed. Please note, as we operate in a public park it is not always easy to find all waste. The children are taught to not pick up or touch any waste/rubbish found on site, but to tell a grown up.
  • Tented toilet facilities are provided and maintained in accordance with health and safety standards.
  • The secure online registry, FAMLY, records a child’s name, DOB, details of their parents or carers and emergency contact details. Any health needs or dietary requirements are recorded, and notes are kept of any accidents, illnesses or medical treatment administered to the child, to be signed by the parents/carers upon collection, or notified immediately in the event of an emergency. Data is stored in line with the Data Protection Act
  • Under the Food Hygiene Regulations 2006, all businesses preparing or supplying food, must register with the environmental health department. Our site  has been registered with Hackney Council and certified as suitable for food preparation and supply.
