The school gates remain open between 8.00am and 8.30am when a member of staff is on duty to welcome the children. At the end of the day children are signed out by a member of staff. At all other times the school gates and doors to the building are closed and access is controlled by an entry phone system.


CCTV is in operation and there are telephones in every classroom linked to the School Secretary's office. If a child arrives after registration (8.25am), the School Secretary needs to be informed of his or her arrival. All visitors must report to the School Secretary's office.

If a child is to be collected from school by someone other than a parent or regular carer, written permission must be handed to the School Secretary for a named person to collect the child on the day or days in question. If relevant, the school must be given information about who has/has not legal access to a child.


An emergency cascade will be organised and tested annually for the whole school.
