Permissions and consents


In the unlikely event your child has an accident, we may need to take them to hospital and meet you there. We need your permission to do this.

I give permission for my child to be taken to hospital for treatment in the event of an emergency.


We sometimes take small groups of children on outings for example, to the library or the market. Please give your consent.

I give permission for my child to be taken on local outings.

Jewellery and precious things:

Precious things can get lost, and jewellery can cause children to be hurt while playing.

 I acceptI don't accept
I accept that if I allow my child to wear jewellery it might get lost and they might get hurt by it, and that if they bring precious things into school they might lose them.

Internet and IT

In school, children only go online occasionally. When they do, it is together with a grown-up, to follow up on particular questions or subjects that link to their learning.

The only part of the internet that is accessible in school is filtered by the London Grid for Learning firewall. On very rare occasions, these precautions may fail, and the school cannot be held responsible for the nature and content of materials accessed. However, the school will do everything in its power to support children if this should happen.

Please read about our online learning to find out more, and do our Six Short Lessons in e-safety to help you stay safe. Do Lesson 1 with your child.

I give permission for my child to use the internet together with an adult

Phones, photos, and occasionally videos

Photos and videos taken by school:

School staff are permitted to take photos and videos as part of our operation as a school. For example, we take photos and videos as part of the observational records of the children's learning which staff keep in their Special Books. You keep these books when your child leaves us.

If we want to use or share these images for something other than their education, we need your consent.

I consent to my child's Special Book being stored in a place where other families might see it.
I consent to my child's photo being on their name card where other families will see it
I consent to photos and videos that include my child being shared on the password-protected learning platform, Class Dojo.
I consent to photos of my child being used in displays in school
I consent to photos of my child being used in the school prospectus
I consent to photos of my child being used on the school website
I consent to photos of my child being used in leaflets and posters advertising activities run by school

Your photos, videos and phones:

As well as not being polite, there may be cultural, safety, or legal reasons why it is inappropriate or even dangerous to take and/or share photos of other children or staff.

During the school day, we do not allow mobile phones in the nursery area.

Your information

The Forest Alliance of Nursery Schools is permitted to process information about you and your child as part of our operation as schools. For example, phoning you if your child becomes ill during the day. You can read more about what we do with your data in our Privacy Notice.

Our Local Education Authority, Waltham Forest Council, also holds data to carry out their functions, for example validating your eligibility code for 2-year-old or 30 hours of Free Early Years Education, or planning their special educational needs provision, and we share data with them. You can read more in their privacy notice at Free Early Education and Childcare Privacy Notice.

But there are some things for which we need your consent:

  • With your consent, Waltham Forest can apply for Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP). This is additional funding paid to early years providers so they can provide extra teaching and learning facilities and resources designed to impact positively on a child’s progress and development.

  • With your consent, we can contact you about school activities that are not, from one point of view, educational, for example if we hold a fundraising disco.

I consent for the information I have provided to be used to check eligibility for Early Years Pupil Premium
I consent to being contacted by school about what’s going on in school, fundraising for school and unusual things the school is planning.

You can change your mind at any point about the consents you have given or withheld on this form. Please will let the school know by emailing, or, or by calling the school on 020 8520 4919 (Church Hill) or 020 8520 1689 (Low Hall), or by calling into the school office.

Please let us know straight away if anything you have told us changes so we can correct our system and take best care of your child.
