Safety and Security

Your child’s safety is our number one priority. For this reason, we ask for your help in these ways:

Maintain up-to-date contact information

We need to know how to reach you, or a person named by you, who will care for your child in an emergency. Please inform the school office promptly of any changes, so we can ensure our records are up-to-date.

We will always try to contact you if we feel that your child needs urgent medical attention. In the event of real emergencies, we will arrange for your child to be taken to hospital as well as contacting either you or a named contact.

Let us know about changes to collection arrangements

We will not allow your child to leave the school premises during the school day unless you have told us to do so. If you have made arrangements for your child to be collected by someone else, please make sure you inform the school.

Follow our procedures for visitors

For security reasons, we ask that all parents, carers and visitors use the main entrance and report to reception. No adults (apart from school staff) should use the children’s entrances to come into school.

For fire safety reasons, all parents, carers and visitors staying in the building for any length of time will be asked to sign in on arrival and sign out when leaving the building.

All visitors are required to wear a visitor’s badge whilst they are on site, so our children will know you are not a stranger.
