It is extremely important that we keep our children safe and secure at all times. In order to do this we have a variety of systems in place to which we ask parents to support and fully adhere to at all times.
Designated Safeguarding Leads are: Mrs Adams (Co-Designated Lead),Mrs Constantinou (Co-Designated Lead), Mrs Beechey and Mrs Richardson (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads) all of whom have Advanced Safeguarding Training which is renewed every two years.
A secure entry system with intercom controls access to the school site.
The playground is fully supervised at playtimes and lunchtimes; the playground is zoned to ensure thorough supervision of the children.
The school gate entrance is open from 8.40am in the morning to allow children and parents into the playground before the school day starts. From 8.45am, members of staff stand at the outer and inner school gates to welcome pupils and monitor entry to and safety on the playground. Other staff are also on duty supervising children. We ask that parents do not leave their children on the playground until a member of staff is present and on duty.
All staff and governors are issued with photo identity lanyards and must wear them at all time.
If children are late into school, they are issued with a yellow late slip from the office to communicate to teachers that they have been registered on site.
Adults authorised to visit the school site are required to sign in and out and wear visitors’ passes at all times
Volunteers and visitors to the school are provided with a Safeguarding Leaflet on entry to the school which summarises our expectations, policy and practice.
All adults working regularly with children (including governors) will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check
Extra- curricular clubs must provide the school with qualification certification and DBS
The school curriculum and values education supports children’s understanding of their responsibility to safeguard themselves and one another.
