Safety & Security on Site

Security arrangements are in place for your child’s safety. The school gates are automated and are programmed to be open at key times in the day. 


If you need to come into school other than at the start or end of the school day, please use the main entrance on Wilmot Street and press the buzzer to gain access to the grounds.


All visitors must report to the School Office on arrival.


Please use the designated entrance for each year group when you drop off or pick up at the end of the day. This reduces ‘traffic’ and makes it easier for teachers and children to spot parents.


Please do not drive on to school premises during teaching time. Staff and visitors only do this if absolutely necessary! If you are registered with a disability and need access to collect your child, please contact the school office to make arrangements.


Visitors to the school are asked to sign in and wear a visitor badge at all times. Staff, volunteers and student teachers also wear identity badges.


All volunteers and coaches in school have appropriate DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) clearance in line with national safeguarding requirements, to ensure the safety and welfare of our children.


All staff are up to date with child protection training and this is reviewed regularly.

Elements of safeguarding, child protection and confidentiality are also part of induction training for students and volunteers in school.
