This drop-in will provide childminders the opportunity to come together with their children to enjoy fun activities linked to their children’s learning and development and strengthen friendships and links between other local childminders.

A childminding development worker from the Council will be running the session which will give all childminders regular access to support they may need.

There is no charge for FEEE-registered minders but there is a small fee for non-FEEE-registered minders of £1.50 for their first child and 50p for each additional child. If you would like to know more about registering to offer the FEEE please visit The Hub - https://thehub.walthamforest.gov.uk/education-borough/becoming-a-childcare-provider-in-waltham-forest/feee-provider-process.

On top of this we will be inviting professionals to attend these sessions. We recognise that childminders may sometimes find it hard to access services to support the needs of the children they care for. Therefore we will be inviting professionals such as Area SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators), Curriculum leaders, Speech and language therapists, Health visitors, Safeguarding advisors, Early Help advisors and FEEE officers to attend some of these drop-ins. A schedule of these visits will be available shortly.

The London Borough of Waltham Forest’s Schools Human Resources Service, in collaboration with Wardell Associates, Training & Consultancy Ltd, is pleased to announce the launch of an accredited Safer Recruitment workshop for schools in Waltham Forest. This is in response to the recent regulation changes as stated in the “Keeping Children Safe in Education July 2015” training requirement for recruitment panels. Wardell Associates were selected to deliver this training following a thorough assessment process that included a Head teacher representative, Schools Human Resources and the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO).

As you will know from 1 January 2010 it became mandatory that any appointments of school staff should be made by a recruitment panel that includes at least one person who has been trained in Safer Recruitment. This course is based on the updated version of the national accredited training that has been developed by the Safer Recruitment Consortium which has taken over responsibility for the design of the training.

The course is fully compliant with the national guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ 2015 and includes an assessment that is a requirement for all school based participants.

The Safer Recruitment training will enable schools to fulfil their responsibility to have in place safe recruitment and selection practice within the wider context of safeguarding children and to make safeguarding children central to all we do.

This course is also open to childcare providers. Whilst it is not statutory for childcare providers to follow the Government’s safer recruitment requirements, following these procedures would be good practice and will ensure compliance with the EYFS statutory requirements regarding recruitment and employment law.
