Safety

Road Safety

We are a designated Healthy School and support and encourage a ‘walk to school’ policy. We also achieved a schools Travel Plan Award in recognition of promoting active travel to school by walking or cycling/scooting.

Parents who drive their children to school, are requested to park a short distance away and then walk in to school via one of our three pedestrian accesses.   Please be considerate when parking outside the school, avoiding obstructing pavements or the driveways of local residents. 

 

Personal Property

Toys should not be brought into the school, as we cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage that might occur. Mobile phones are to be handed in to the school office first thing in the morning and can be collected at the end of the day.

Jewellery should not be worn; this is in the interest of Health and Safety.  Children are not allowed to wear any jewellery in P.E. and those wearing watches are responsible for keeping them safe.

Lost property is kept for a limited period in a box in the main entrance hall.

 

Security

The Governors have installed burglar alarms, entrance buzzers and controlled entry systems. We also have CCTV that covers most of the external entrances/exits of the school aiding security and preventing vandalism.  Visitors must report to Reception on arrival on the school site to obtain an authorised visitor’s pass.   This must be worn at all times and returned to reception as part of the process of signing out, when leaving the school. 

Insurance

The insurance arranged centrally by the City Council protects the L.A., Governors and Staff at the school, against their legal liability to compensate a child who sustains a personal injury and considers it resulted from negligence on behalf of the school or the L.A.  This liability is in force for school organised activities in the U.K. including extra-curricular activities and educational visits.

 

The school does not carry insurance to cover children’s ,employees and visitors personal belongings.  Parents are therefore advised that the school cannot accept responsibility for articles brought on to the premises
