Health and Safety

It is one of our prime responsibilities to keep all our children safe. We strive to ensure a safe environment but it is vital that all children obey all
School rules which are designed to ensure safety and order in our School. 

The School is well maintained and monitored by staff designated as safety officers and by the Headteacher. All staff are instructed to challenge adults and older children who are either in School or on the grounds. Our excellent record can be upheld if the following points are followed:- Children are not permitted to:

• Leave the School premises during School hours 
• Play near the boundary fences or the School car park 
• Go into stockrooms
• Use the first aid boxes
• Remain in School during breaks (unless directed by a member of staff)
• Wear offensive or inappropriate clothing and footwear 

Recent events in Schools now prevent visitors and parents from walking freely around School and into classrooms. Whilst you are known to your child’s teacher, you may not be known to other members of staff. It is important therefore that you report to the School office when you come to the main entrance. 

Please do not wander around the corridors and the School grounds (includes playgrounds). You will be asked to wait in the entrance foyer whilst we fetch your child for you. You may not enter class through the cloakrooms at the back of your child’s class. 

Junior children are expected to make their own way into School from the gates via the appropriate classroom door. If children are waiting by the School gates at ‘home time’ and no one arrives to collect them please teach them to go back into School, via the front door, after a short time. Children are safe and secure in the hall and there are School staff around to reassure them. 

Children must use the pedestrian walkways. No child should go onto the driveway and car parking areas. We cannot guarantee the safety of, or accept responsibility for, any child using the latter. It is a very busy main entrance.
