As technology continues to evolve, First Steps would like to ask all visitors and parents to follow our mobile phone safeguarding policy.

The welfare, protection and safety of every child in our care is of paramount importance, and we take our responsibility to safeguard children seriously. We have procedures in place, which we ask everyone to respect, to help promote the safety of the children in our care.

We cover this in full in our safeguarding document (point 4. onwards) but would like to highlight the importance of parents not using their phones in the building. We would please ask for all calls and messages to wait and no photography and/or camera-use what so ever whilst on the First Steps’ premises, this way we are all doing our bit to ensure the utmost safety and protection of all children in our care.
