Safeguarding

School Security

The building has been built with security in mind. Adult access is through the main entrance through a controlled entry system and all other doors are locked at 8.55am to ensure the children’s safety.

The children are never left unsupervised and members of staff on duty in the playgrounds are in contact with other staff by two-way radios.

All volunteers, work experience students / adults and Governors are cleared by the Disclosure Barring Service when appropriate or required before being allowed in contact with children.
