KEEPING YOUR CHILD SAFE
Keeping your child safe is of fundamental importance to us.
To ensure your child’s safety, please do not bring them to school before 8.45am. If you bring your child by car please take care of other children and pedestrians and park
sensibly, not in a dangerous position, and never on the yellow lines outside school.
Parking is not allowed in the entrance to the drive, on the school driveway or in the staff car park.
Rather than stand blocking the gate or path, please come into the front play area to wait for your child. During school hours the Wordsworth Avenue entrance is locked.
If anyone other than a parent is collecting a child from school, please would you inform us.
Each term a fire practice is held to check the safe evacuation of pupils and staff.
Links with the Police are furthered by our support of road Safety and the ‘Strangers’ talks given to the children by the Community Police Officer.
Would all parents who need to enter the school please use the front entrance which is clearly signed. All other entrances are secured so that they cannot be opened from the outside.
Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow Lancashire’s Child Protection Procedures and inform Social Services of their concern.
