Security of pupils, staff, volunteers and Visitors

All visitors must:

  • Enter through main entrance and report directly to the office
  • Be signed in and have ID checked by office staff (DBS or valid ID)
  • Wear the appropriate lanyard 
  • Ensure you sign out and let the office know when you are leaving
  • Ensure the gates and doors are securely closed behind you as you leave

Disclosure and Barring Service

All visitors, including supply staff, and regular volunteers in school will need to present either DBS or valid ID to be checked upon entry. Trip volunteers will be subject to a list 99 check and this information will be gathered beforehand. This is to help ensure that only suitable DBS checked visitors, staff and volunteers are working unsupervised with children. If you have any questions about this, please contact the school office.
