The safety of children from our school is of paramount importance. We regularly monitor a wide range of policies and procedures to ensure we keep up to date with all aspects of safety and safeguarding. We hope that the information on this page will help raise your awareness of how to keep your child safe both 'virtually' and in the community.
We promote walking, cycling and scooting as sustainable and healthy modes of transport to and from school. Our school is part of the Sustrans initiative (Sustainable Transport) to encourage alternative methods of transport to school. To ensure children are safe on their way to and from school, we ask that parents educate children about being safe around the roads and that they cross the road safely with Dawn, our friendly lollypop lady!
We take part in the Bikeability Training (Cycling Proficiency for the 21st Century!) which is aims to train children how to stay safe on their bikes.
We ask that all children cycling to or from school wear a cycle helmet. We also ask that all bikes and scooters are locked in the bike sheds during the day and that there is no scooting or cycling on the school grounds at any point due to the high numbers of people moving around the school at the start and end of the day (some of whom may be very young or elderly.)
Below is some general advice and information to help keep your children safe. Please come and talk to members of the staff if you ever have any questions about how to best keep your child safe or if you are concerned about the safety of any member of our school community.
