Health and Safety

The school updates its Health and Safety Policy on an annual basis.

Security of the School

The school has a state of the art CCTV system in place which is externally monitored. All visitors to the school are directed to a single security coded access gate and then a single security access coded door where they will be helped by school admin staff. All other doors around the school are accessed by a secure fob entry .These fobs are only made availble to authorised persons. Everyone has a constant and shared responsibility to make the school site as safe and secure as possible.

Children’s Health and Well-being

All parents and carers are responsible to inform the school of any health and well-being issues affecting their child. This helps the school be more pro-active in pastoral matters.

Asthma

An asthma card can be collected form the school office to be filled in by the parent/carer of the child and handed back to the school office.

Parents are responsible for ensuring that their child has an up to date and clearly labelled inhaler/s in school. This/these will be kept in a place accessible to your child at all times.

Asthma Inhaler Consent Form

Head Lice

Parents are responsible for regularly checking their child’s head and treating appropriately to prevent infection spreading throughout the school. Letters are sent home to inform parents whenever there is an outbreak.

Vomiting and Diarrhoea

If your child is absent from school with the above symptoms we recommend that they remain off school for a further 48 hours from the last time they had vomiting or diarrhoea. This advice is given via the School Nurse to help stop the spread of the illness.

Children returning to school after an illness can now be given antibiotic medicines in school but must fill out a permission slip from the school office. This is only for children whose dose is specified as 4 times daily.

Hair and Jewellery

Due to Health and Safety no jewellery is to be worn in school under any circumstances.

Letter sent to parents on Friday 24th October 2014  Earring letter

Any long hair should be tied back. Extreme or inappropriate hairstyles are not allowed for school including tram lines and shapes. Extremely short hair is discouraged. The Headteacher decides on this matter according to styles which may change due to fashion trends. Children are not to have a tattoo (permanent, henna or transfer) in school.
