Security, Health & Safety
We aim to ensure that the school building is as secure as possible. The school doors open at 8.50am and all children enter school through the main doors. Parents are responsible for their children until they enter the school. Any children arriving after 9.00am must be brought to the main entrance where parents are asked to sign them in. All other visitors must also report to the main entrance.
School finishes at 3.15pm – when responsibility passes back to the parent. We ask that children are collected by a parent, if someone else will be collecting your child from school – who should be a responsible adult over the age of 16 – you are asked to inform the school in advance – if there are any doubts children will not be released. There may be occasions when you are delayed in collecting your child, if possible, please contact the school to inform us of your estimated time of arrival. Children who are not collected on time will be taken back into school, and parents must go to the main entrance to collect them. Social Services will be contacted if a child is consistently late being collected from school, or if a child is left for over 30 minutes without being picked up and the parent/carer has not contacted school to explain the situation.
If your child – in Key Stage 2 is allowed to walk home by themselves, please let us know.
When entering the school grounds to attend Breakfast Club or if a child is arriving after 9.00am, please ensure that you use the green pedestrian gate – and not come in through the main car park gates, this gate is for cars and the safety of the children cannot be guaranteed if you allow them to use this entrance.
In line with legal requirements – smoking is not allowed on the school grounds at any time. This includes the use of “e-cigarettes”.
Dogs, with the exception of guide dogs, are not permitted on school grounds at any time – not even if they are carried.
Parents are asked not to bring their cars into the school car park as this is for staff and official taxis only.
