Health and Safety

Security


During school hours all visitors and parents are asked to report to the main entrance where they will sign in and be given a visitors badge.

 

Dropping Off and Collection of Children

We encourage walking to school where possible.

Children are allowed to bring scooters to school but these must be named and kept in the scooter park.

Children must walk their scooters once they enter the school pedestrian areas.

Parking in Lidl’s Car Park is permitted and encouraged.

The safety of our children is paramount and for that reason, there is very limited parking on site.

Parking at the front of the school is strictly for buses and taxis only.

Please keep to the designated paths and cross the car park carefully, keeping your child close beside you.

Children need to be kept from climbing on walls and seats and walking on the planted areas.

Children in Years 5 & 6 are allowed to come to school or leave school at the end of the school day on their own. All other children must be brought into school and collected from school by an adult.

Sickness

No child will be allowed to attend Nursery or school with any infectious disease.

Children should not return to Nursery or school following sickness and/or diarrhoea until he/she has been symptom free for 48 hours to prevent the spread of infection.

 

Medicines

It is not the responsibility of staff to give medicines to children. However, the staff in St. Paul’s has agreed to give the tail end of prescribed medicines (those given by a doctor) to children in the school.

If parents request this they must take the medicine to the School Office and fill in and sign a Medicine Slip. Office staff  will then hand the medicine to the member of staff designated to administer the medicine.

All bottles must be clearly labelled.

Commercial medicines i.e. those bought over the counter cannot and will not be administered to children by any member of staff.

Inhalers and Volumatics

If these are to be administered then parents must fill in a 'Medicine Slip' at the School Office the first time they are brought into school. We ask that all volumatics are labelled as these can be easily mixed up if they become separated from their boxes. We also ask that inhalers should be marked with the child's name.

Inhalers will be kept in a safe place in the relevant classroom for easy access by the child.

ALL MEDICINES MUST BE HANDED FROM ONE ADULT TO ANOTHER.

MEDICINES SHOULD NOT BE BROUGHT IN BY THE CHILDREN AND THEY CANNOT BE ACCEPTED FROM THE CHILDREN.

Accidents

If your child is taken to hospital outside of school time as a result of an injury which has happened IN school please report it to us, as we have to notify the Health and Safety Agencies.
