SICKNESS & ILLNESS POLICY 2023/24
We promote the good health of all children attending.
To help keep children healthy and minimise infection, we do not expect children to attend nursery if they are unwell.
If a child is unwell it is in their best interest to be in a home environment with adults they know well rather than at nursery with their peers.

Promoting Fundamental British Values
Our nursery reflects British values. We aim to be at the heart of the community, sharing, supporting and learning together with everyone as equals. Our children are entitled to high quality learning experiences. We encourage our children to be creative, confident, open-minded, independent and unique individuals, respectful of themselves and of others, our local community and the wider world. We aim to nurture our children so they can grow into caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British Society and to the world.
Democracy is taken seriously. Children are encouraged to have a voice and share their views and opinions.
The rule of law
The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the nursery, or the country, are reinforced throughout the day. Children are taught the value and reasons rules, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when rules are broken.
Children are actively encouraged to make the right decisions and choices, knowing they are in a safe and supportive environment. We provide boundaries for young children to take risks and make choices safely. Children are encouraged to exercise their rights and personal freedoms.
Mutual respect is at the heart of our values. Children learn that their behaviours have an effect on their own rights and those of others. ALL members of the nursery are encouraged to treat each other with respect.
Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
The nursery is culturally diverse and places emphasis on promoting diversity and tolerance.
