*NEW* Pet Risk Assessment Template

This template will help you to assess any additional risks and areas to be considered at a result of keeping pets at your setting. You may also find the Pet Policy Template within the Policies & Procedures Pack helpful.


*NEW* Exception To Ratios Risk Assessment Template 

The majority of childminders are permitted to care for up to six children under the age of eight at any one time. Of these six children, a maximum of three may be young children and only one may be under 12 months old. There are however circumstances that can arise where childcare providers may want to request an exception to these ratios for example to provide care for sibling babies or to maintain continuity of care for children already attending the setting.  The notes within this pack explain such circumstances in further detail and the template risk assessment will help you to assess any additional risks that must be considered as a result of the exception.

Please note that in all circumstances, you will need to seek the permission for an exception to ratios from Ofsted / The Care Inspectorate and will need to demonstrate to parents/ carers and inspectors that the individual needs of each child can be met.

You may also find the Ratio Management Chart useful for helping to manage your ratios.
