Site Safety

In order to safeguard staff and pupils at our school, we take site safety very seriously.

 

  • External gates and doors to buildings are passcode protected.
  • At busy drop off and pick up times, we operate a one way system in and out of the main entrance to ease congestion on the entry slope.
  • Please note that bikes and scooters must not be ridden in the playground; there is a bike and scooter park via the Bloomfield Road entrance.
  • Children are not allowed on playground equipment before or after school due to insurance purposes.
  • Dogs and smoking are also not allowed on the school site.

 

If you are visiting our school, please use the main entrance on Langton Road and wait for a member of the office team to let you in. We endeavour to ensure that someone is in the office at all times but this is occasionally unavoidable; in such instances, we ask that you wait so that you can be welcomed into our school in accordance with our safeguarding procedures.

 

All staff, volunteers and visitors including contractors should wear a school lanyard at all times. If you are in school without a lanyard, you can expect to be challenged and taken to the school office.

 

At regular points throughout the year, we practise our fire and lockdown procedures. If you are visitor in school during one of these practices, we aim to ensure you are notified and given instruction on what to do. In the event of an unplanned event we ask that you take the following action:

 

If you hear a fire alarm sounding, please exit the building quickly and calmly via the nearest external door (fire evacuation paths are located in all rooms), assemble at the top of the playground and await further instruction.

 

If you hear a long whistle, this indicates a lockdown - this could take place for a number of reasons and action taken will depend on the reason. We follow the police advice of 'run, hide, tell.' If it is safe to do so, run from the site. If not, hide and do not draw attention to yourself. Contact the police as soon as it is safe to do so - do not assume someone else has. Please note, the only time we use a whistle in school is for lockdown.

 

Please see full details of our emergency and critical incident procedures below.
