Staff became increasingly uncomfortable and worried about George’s behaviour,but felt they had nowhere to go with these feelings.The dangers of mobile phones with in the day care setting There was no clear staff recruitment and selection policy and the manager had not attended safer recruitment training.the review concluded that there was a combination of weak management, poor training and a lack of external scrutiny.There was no supervisory framework implemented at the Z nursery and as already demonstrated, the weak manager modelled blurred, professional boundaries and selective resistance to contact with outside agencies and did ‘just enough’ to stave off too much scrutiny by Ofsted.The lack of professional boundaries between nursery staff and parents allowed cliques to form and socialise with each other outside of nursery hours.
