Where do I find Parental Permissions?

Simply log in to Famly, and click on the 'Apps' section, then select the 'Parental Permissions' app.

Create your setting's list of permissions

In order to have an up-to-date list of what each child in your setting is allowed to do, you can share your list of permissions for each child in Famly. To create your list of permissions:

  • To create a new permission, Click 'Add' in the top right corner

  • Next, fill out the fields shown (as below).
    The permissions form requests a parent answers 'Yes' or 'No', so make sure you have written the permission statement so is easy for practitioners to clearly see if something is allowed or not.

  • Choose the recipients- for example, all children, a specific group, or a single child

  • Next, add a more detailed description if necessary

  • You can also add a file as an attachment, if you wish to

  • Finish off by clicking ‘Add

  • The permission will show now up on the child's profile for the parents to answer.

Once you have created your list of permissions, this will then be automatically requested from the parents of each new child enrolled in your setting- you do not need to create a new list for each child.

View your setting's current permissions list

To view a list of the current permissions your setting requests of parents, log in to Famly, and click on the 'Apps' section, then select the 'Parental Permissions' app. The first tab, called 'Overview' contains the list of current permissions.

Delete a permission

You can delete a permission from your setting's list of parental permissions, if it no longer becomes relevant. To do this:

  • Log in to Famly

  • Click on the 'Apps' section

  • Select the 'Parental Permissions' app

  • From the 'Overview' tab, choose the one you'd like to delete, and click 'Delete' next to that permission.

  • Then confirm that you want to delete the permission by clicking 'Delete' again, in the pop-up window.

The details of a permission cannot be edited once it's been created. This is because a parent is often giving consent to the exact permission that has been sent to them, and they may not have the same response should the permission be edited.

Check the responses to permissions for children in your setting

The second tab in the 'Parental Permissions' app will show a table of all responses from parents. This is so you can have an overview of permissions given, and those still awaiting a response from parents. Of course, this is also where you can see where permission has not been granted.


Create a list of what children are permitted to do

As permissions given (or not given) by parents are key to the care you give to the children in your setting, Famly makes it easy to create a list of who may do what. To create a list based on permissions:

  • Log in to Famly and click on the 'Apps' menu

  • Next, open the 'Lists' app.

  • In here, you can add 'Permissions' both as a filter (found on the bottom left side of the page) or as a column on the top right.
