Guidelines for Developing Policies and Procedures

The documents below were developed to assist Early Years Services in developing Policies and Procedures 

The aim of this document is to provide support and guidance for early years services in developing their Child Safeguarding Statement and Accompanying Child Safeguarding Policies and Procedures.

A Critical Incident Plan Toolkit was created in collaboration with twelve partners in the childcare sector as a resource for childcare services in 2012.The purpose of the toolkit is to address basic emergency planning and response for a range of childcare emergencies. The aim of the toolkit is to create a sample critical incident response policy and procedure for childcare services allowing providers to have the capacity to respond appropriately in the event of a critical incident; to return to normal as quickly as possible after the incident and to limit the effects of the incident on children; families; staff/committee and any parties affected by the critical incident.
