Health and Safety
Pupils must remain in school during the day unless collected by parents/carers or by adults that parents/carers have nominated. Pupils not being met at home time must go straight home. Pupils are reminded regularly not to talk to strangers either on foot or in cars. Regular risk assessments are undertaken to ensure safe working practices.
For our pupils' safety only cars displaying blue disabled badges are allowed to use the drop off lane.The car park is strictly for staff use only.
Should a pupil be involved in an accident at school we have a number of trained First Aiders to attend to minor cuts, bruises etc. and provide a comfortable environment forthe injured pupil. Parents/carers will receive a 'bump of the head letter' or a'minor accident form' to report an accident and any subsequent treatment.
If the injury is thought to be more serious or if a pupil falls ill at school, staff will give assistance and comfort and make arrangements for parents/carers (or designated adults) to be contacted so that the pupil can be collected and taken home for professional medical care. It is important that wehave an up to date emergency contact number from you and a list of identified adults that your child can be handed over. Please let us know of any changes.
The person responsible for health and safety is Mrs Lyn Wignall. A detailed Health and Safety Policy outlining roles and responsibilities has been agreed by governors.
Medicines in School
Medicines are administered with prior arrangement with the headteacher or part of a care plan. Our pupils with asthmatic problems must keep their inhalers on their person or in the classroom in the case of our younger pupils at all times. It is important that you inform school of any allergies.
School is surrounded by a security fence and gates are locked promptly once pupils are in. All staff wear named identity badges. All visitors enter the school via the main entrance intothe secure lobby and sign the visitors' book. A visitor's badge is allocated and what to do in case of fire. Visitors are always escorted around school. All outside doors are all routinely closed after break and lunch times. Younger pupils are only handed over to identified adults by their parents/carers.
Should the occasion arise that your child falls ill or has an accident at school, itis vital that we have an emergency contact number for us to use and that this is kept up to date. We also use a texting service so keeping school up to date with your mobile number is essential. To safeguard your child school will alsoneed a list of adults that are eligible for collecting your child.
