Policy & Procedure No.3
In accordance with The Children Act, correct staff-to-child ratios will be maintained at all times.
a. The unwell staff member will contact the Lead Practitioner/Manager before 07.00 hours.
b. The Lead Practitioner/Manager will call on staff members who are not working the session.
c. If there are no other staff available, the Lead Practitioner/Manager will contact the Committee for staffing assistance, or contact parents/carers to advise them of the situation and to see if the appropriate number of children cannot attend Pre-School for that session. This will ensure that the Pre-School does not exceed its Ofsted registration requirements.

e. All staff members will also be excluded for 48 hours if they have a contagious illness or disease.
