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.

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 for buses, taxis, visitors and permitted individuals 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 as long as permission slips have been completed and returned to school. All other children must be brought into school and collected from school by an adult. School must be informed of any changes in personnel collecting children from school.

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, named staff in school will administer prescribed medicines that need to be given four times a day. Appropriate medical forms must be completed by a responsible adult at the school office. Medication must be clearly labelled. A adult must approach the school office to collect medicine at the end of the school day.


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.
