Staying Safe

Our expectations are high. Great care is taken to ensure all staff and pupil feel safe and secure at our school. We are mindful to supporting not only their physical health but good mental health and well-being too.


The health, safety and well-being of all our children are of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our school. Teachers are available daily after school to discuss any aspects of care, guidance and support required.

If a child has a pastoral need, with permission of the parents, they may refer them to work our family link worker/ ELSA mentor within our Acorn Suite facility. This member of staff works with individuals and small groups of children on social development, self-esteem and behaviour management programmes. 


Our school is a safe and secure environment. We have high perimeter fencing and electronic gates which are locked during school hours, and CCTV to monitor security. External doors to the buildings have safety locks and the main doors require security codes for access.  Visitors are required to report to the main office to sign in and collect a temporary identity badge.


Parents, staff and children are asked to sign safety rules for the use of the internet. In school the children are taught on-line safety and only access the internet through high level of security filtering.


When children start school we ask parents to state the level of permission they give for how photographs and video recordings of their child may be used by the school. In addition, parents will be asked to sign a permission slip to allow their child to access amenities in the local area e.g. visiting the Church, Irchester Country Park. Residentials and trips involving transport require parental permission to be given every time.


Information from home is gathered initially on an admission form and is then updated annually.  This information is held securely in school on a computer and is covered by GDPR regulations.
