Health & Safety
Illness or Accidents at School
Despite our care and concern, it is always possible that your child may be taken ill in school or suffers some mishap. We always do our best to comfort and tend your child, but it may be necessary to get in touch with you to consider whether the child should go home, or visit the doctor.
In an emergency we will call an ambulance. It is therefore essential that we have your correct contact details.
PLEASE KEEP US INFORMED OF ANY CHANGES TO THESE DETAILS.
We will also ask you to complete a consent form allowing us to give permission for medical treatment in the event of an emergency.
If your child has a minor bump or accident that has led to some treatment, you will receive a small slip explaining what happened and how we responded.
ALL visitors must report to the school office, where they must sign a visitor's book. Visitors will not be allowed onto the premises until arrangements have been made for them to be received by a member of staff. The inner doors of the front entrance have a security lock that can only be opened by a member of staff from inside or from the office.
Registers and Log Book
The need to keep track of the people in the building is important for two reasons: firstly to ensure that only those people who have business in the school are admitted. Secondly, in the event of an emergency when the school must be evacuated, everyone must be accounted for.
Once the children are in school and the day has started, all doors leading to the playground are locked from the inside. The only route into school is then via the front office.
Late arrivals/Early departures
If your child goes home for lunch, please make sure that he or she does not return to school until 1.10pm, no earlier please.
End of the School Day
Once all the children have left, the outside doors are again locked and the only access is via the front office.
