Safe Guarding:


CHILD PROTECTION:


The safety and well-being of the children in our care is always our highest priority. The school has a clear policy for Child Protection which is available to parents on request. All staff receive regular training to recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse.


Any concern regarding child protection should be discussed with the Principal, the nominated teacher for Child Protection.



SECURITY:


Once the children are in school, doors are locked to prevent access by anyone from outside. This is to ensure your child's safety whilst in the school building.

If you need to enter school at any time during the school hours, please report to the main office first where the school secretary will let you in.

ILLNESS AND INJURY:


If a child being ill or injured at school, parents will be contacted as soon as possible so that the child can be collected from school. For this system to work effectively it is essential that the school has an up to date record of contact names, address and telephone numbers.





MEDICINES:


MEDICAL AND FIRST AID:

The school provides first aid as and when required and has registered medical practitioner on call to take care of any emergency. However, students with wheezing should carry the prescribed medicine/medication with them. Parents should send a note in this regard to the class teacher in the school calendar.

Class teachers cannot be responsible for administering medication to children. If it is essential that your child needs to receive prescribed medication during the school day, please bring it in the original container with the chemist's label to the main office. It must be clearly marked with the child's name and dosage. Please note that no medication can be administered to the nose or eyes by staff.
