Health and Safety

It is our policy to provide a healthy and safe environment for staff, children and visitors to Oxford House. Health and safety training will take place on a regular basis.

At all times, the Oxford House staff will co-operate fully in implementing health and safety initiatives. They will do everything possible to make sure that no injuries occur to the children, themselves or others. A regular fire drill will be carried out.

Various Health and Safety signs are posted around the building. Risk assessments will be carried out and recommendations adhered to. At all times, there will be a qualified first aider on the premises.

Behavioural Management

behaviour

We will encourage the children to be polite, caring, helpful and respectful towards others. Staff will be fully trained to spot all forms of negative behaviour i.e. aggression. It is the duty of the Director to see that a peaceful and safe environment is implemented at all times. Staff will always ensure that they set positive examples for the children. We have a zero tolerance to aggressive behaviour.

Illness

Parent/carers will be required to provide a written statement if their child(ren) have seen their Doctor or been to the hospital for emergency treatment. Parents must inform Oxford House if their child has an infectious illness. We will not be able to take children in who are ill, this is to protect the rest of the children from the spread of disease or infectious illnesses. The list of childhood infectious illnesses can be obtained from Oxford House, a copy is also displayed on the parents’ notice board. This policy states when it is safe for your child to return to Oxford House.

Medication

med

Antibiotics, prescribed medication should be given to the child at home for the first 24 hours. This is due to avoid any allergic reactions that may occur. Staff will be informed of illnesses, such as diabetes, asthma and eczema. The staff will also be given outside updates and ongoing training. Forms will be given to all parents/carers whose child(ren) are on any medication prescribed only by their GP/doctor or hospital. This is to be signed before any medicine can be given.

Our Philosophy

Each child is a person of worth deserving of our love and respect. Each child is unique with his/her own needs, interests, abilities and growth rate. Each child is a creative person who needs opportunities to experiment with a variety of materials and to develop social skills in an age appropriate setting.

A love for Learning

We instil love for learning and art. We do this in close partnership with parents by ensuring that your child is attending a warm and loving nursery. We also support parents with the foundations for discipline as these are laid down in the early years. We use different strategies as children develop greater independence, self regulation and responsibility. build character
