Health and Safety

Health and Safety

We believe it is vital to maintain a safe environment for all children, parents, staff and visitors. To achieve this we:

  • Have a comprehensive Health and Safety policy that is reviewed and updated annually
  • Arrange regular monitoring by the School Business Manager and Governing Body
  • Practise our ‘evacuation’ procedures in the unlikely event of a fire or other emergency
  • Put in place all updated Health and Safety procedures as directed by South Gloucestershire

Road Safety

Drivers must go slowly and with great caution at busy times near the school.

Parents / carers are not to park in the school car park to drop off/pick up children unless arrangements have been made with the Headteacher. The car park gates are closed between 8.30am and 3.30pm to promote pupil safety. We ask all parents / carers to park with consideration to our local residents. This is to avoid accidents and to keep on good terms with our neighbours. Children are encouraged to come to school on bikes and scooters but are not to ride them on site as this can cause accidents. Please climb off them on arrival at the gate and walk them to the bike parks.

No Smoking

It is not permissible to smoke anywhere in the school buildings or grounds. This is to protect the health of the whole school community.

No Dogs

Dogs are not allowed on the premises except guide dogs or by special arrangement with the Headteacher. Again, this is to avoid accidents.
