Has anybody been involved with the early years settings with regard to the fair processing notice that we are being advised to use for this process. 

I have been advised that the DCSF have suggested we use the text in the link below (as a  fair processing notice), however this appears far too long and detailed to the point that it will not make much sense to parents.

Can I ask what others are doing to prepare a fair processing notice for this?  Are you going with the suggested text or are you creating shorter concise fair processing notices?
