Privacy Notice

In accordance with the GDPR our setting has a duty to abide by the requirements of the EYFS and the GDPR. We process personal data relating to those we employ to work as, or are otherwise engaged to work as, part of our workforce in accordance with Article 6 – ‘the rights of data subjects’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. {Article 9 – ‘processing of special categories of personal data’ under the GDPR - from May 2018}

We use this data while we are managing your employment with us. It is essential in assisting us in the running of the setting, and to inform the development of our recruitment and retention policies. We also collect data as it allows us to plan our financial model and allows employees to be paid accordingly.



 We collect, hold and share the following information. We will collect and process personal data for and to the extent necessary for the specific purpose(s). We are collecting data in accordance with the EYFS 3.8-3.71. We collect the information as it provides us with tools to ensure your child's needs are being met whilst in our care.

The type of details that we will gather on your child are as follows:   


  • Personal details of the family we are providing care for – this includes your name, your address, your email address, telephone and mobile phone number as well as other contact information
  • We will collect information on your child’s routine, likes and dislikes as well as where they are developmentally at the point of entry. This is to ensure that we can meet the needs of your child.
  • As part of our commitment to ensuring equality in our setting, we will collect information pertaining to your family’s ethnicity, language, and nationality. This is to ensure that we can fully meet the needs of your child whilst in the setting with us.
  • We also have a duty to ensure that we can act swiftly and to contact the relevant and appropriate people in the event of an accident, problem or in the event of death. Therefore we collect information relating to your child’s next of kin.  
  • We retain information pertaining to your child’s attendance, sickness and when away on holidays. We collect this information because it allows us to provide you with a detailed understanding of your child’s time here with us and plan accordingly in line with their needs. The data provides us with specific information allowing us to plan ahead and ensure the fluidity of the setting.                             


The majority of data that we gather will be supplied by you the parent. The data will be processed in accordance with the principles of the GDPR.  The data which I will hold will allow my setting to comply with the requirements of the EYFS. The majority of the information that my setting will collect will be based on the statutory framework and will be collected in accordance with that and processed and held in accordance with the GDPR. You will be made aware of the mandatory information I will need to collect and the information that you do not need to submit.



We will always ensure that you are aware of the types of data that you are legally obliged to provide but we will also tell you what data isn’t necessary. In the event that you supply data that is not mandatory but you feel the need to share this with us, we will ensure that your data is protected and not discussed with anyone else unless you disclose something which is illegal or harmful to a child.


We will from time to time ask you to update any data that we currently hold, this is because we will need to know that the information we hold about you is accurate and up to date and relevant.


We may gather and collect further information that helps us, to deal with any issues that may arise from complaints or disputes within the setting. We will from time to time ask parents to undertake a critical appraisal of he setting so that we can build on our existing excellent practice.



How will I store data?


•       I will ensure that only those that have a need to know basis can access staff data.

•       Children's files are secured in a locked cabinet/or a data/password encrypted device



Sharing of Personal Data



The EYFS states that I am required from time to time to share specific information. Below is a table of who I will share this information with and why.



Shared with



Local Authority

As you are obtaining Government funding, you must supply your details including a copy of your child's birth certificate to prove your child is eligible.

Invoice and Payments

HMRC – TAX credits

From time to time childminders are asked to provide information on parents that are in receipt of universal credits/Tax credits. This is to ensure that those receiving the benefits are right to do so.

Safeguarding Notes/concerns

LSCB/LA/Ofsted/The Police

In the event of a safeguarding/child protection concern, we would have to comply with any request for information that may help with an investigation.





I will keep your data for a set period of time if I am legally obliged to do so (see Retention Policy), all other data will be surrendered to you when your child leaves our setting or will be destroyed as we will no longer have a legitimate interest to keep such data.


I will keep accident records and details of any medications given as well as records of safeguarding and child protection. These documents will be kept until the child reaches the age of 21 and 3 months as stated by the imitations Acts 1980.


Online data – PROCESSING


The data that I collect from your child and family will be stored on my laptop computer/Ipad. I make use of an online system and have ensured that they are compliant with GDOR. I will never use an online system that does not comply with GDPR, and that would put your data at risk.


Website – if parents visit my website we do not collect any specific information. We provide numbers for potential parents to call us. Google analytics collects details on visitor behaviour, but I do not in any way make use of this information. If you click on any external links, please not that you are no longer connected to our website so I cannot be held responsible for any external content.


Email data


You will only receive news, information or invoices from us. I will not undertake any form of direct marketing, and when you leave the setting, I will delete your email address.


Any files or photography that I keep on any online systems including online platforms such as Baby days/Online Learning Journals or on my hard drive or on the cloud will be erased completely when your child leaves the setting. I will ensure that photographs will be deleted from the hard drive, taken off the cloud and deleted from any social media closed groups or one to one parent groups. All data will be PERMANENTLY deleted and will not sit in a recycling bin.


WhatsApp Group


I invite parents to connect with me privately on WhatsApp due to the fact that WhatsApp has encryption enabling meaning what we send to one another is shared only between us. In the one, to one group we can exchange private and sensitive information such as if you are ill or are not bringing your child into the setting. Any photographs shared in the one to one group will be deleted instantly from my device.




My setting has a Facebook platforms. This is a business Facebook where everyone can visit and see the services that I offer. If you have agreed to your child photographic images or video footage to be used in the OPEN Facebook group, you will need to sign the relevant consent form. You can at any time choose to withdraw that consent, and in the event of doing so, I will delete all multi-media material from the facebook site. I will be blocking the facial images of the children so that they cannot be recognized. I will never name any of the children on the facebook site.


Parents and carers are welcome to comment on the page and leave reviews. I welcome this, but please beware that your identity is revealed when using reviews on the facebook page and members of the general public will know if your child is attending our setting unless of course, you are leaving the review after your child has left.



Paper Data


When you and your child leave the setting any paper documents that I have produced as part of the observation and assessments process will be given to you. Learning Journals, daily diaries and any other significant observations sheets will be handed over to you, the parent with parental responsibility.


Any documents that are not needed or wanted by the parents and are not required to be kept for a minimum amount of years will be shredded or burned. Please see the settings Retention Policy for further information.
