Safeguarding & E-Safety
It is extremely important that we keep our children safe and secure at all times. In order to do this we have a variety of systems and protocols in place which we ask parents to support and fully adhere to at all times.
A secure entry system with intercom
CCTV cameras are placed around the school site
On-site parking is restricted to school staff only
A member of the SLT stands at the entrances every morning
All staff are issued with photo identity lanyards
Adults authorised to visit the school site are required to sign in and out and wear visitors' lanyards at all times
All adults working regularly with children (more than three times in a month) will be subject to a DBS check
All staff, including supply teachers and other adults working with children, are given information about how to report concerns
Extra-curricular clubs must provide the school with qualification certification and DBS
All staff receive safeguarding training annually, with regular updates throughout the year.

Stranger Danger Rules:
• Never go anywhere with a stranger.
• Never accept gifts or sweets from a stranger.
• Never get in a car with a stranger.
• Always tell a trusted adult if you think something bad happened or might happen.
• Never go off on your own without telling your parents or a trusted adult.
• Tell your child it is okay to break the rules if they are in danger.
We teach road safety as part of our curriculum but it is essential that children are reminded often of how to keep safe when out and about.
