8.5 Fire safety and emergency evacuation

Designated Fire Marshalls are: Cheryl Beisly and Clare Worlin


Our provision is a suitable, clean, and safe place for children to be cared for, where they can grow and learn. We meet all statutory requirements about fire safety and fulfil the criteria for meeting the relevant Early Years Foundation Stage Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements.


  • We recognise that we have a corporate responsibility and a duty of care for those who work in and receive a service from our provision, but individual employees and service users also have a responsibility to ensure their own safety as well as that of others. Risk assessment is the key means through which this is achieved.

  • A fire safety risk assessment is carried out by a competent person in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

  • A Fire Log is completed and regularly updated.

  • Necessary equipment is in place to promote fire safety.
