All children must be registered with us. The registration form asks for details such as emergency contacts and medical information. These are held in strict confidence. It is essential that staff are aware of any severe medical problems, and the action they should take.
We are obliged to share confidential information without authorisation from the person whom provided it or to whom it relates if it is in the public interest.
That is when:
- It is to prevent a crime from being committed or intervene where one may have been or to prevent harm to a child or adult.
- Not sharing it, could be worse than the outcome of having shared it.
Please inform staff of any changes to your child’s details.
