Health and Safety
Please note we do not allow any child to leave the school premises other than at the end of
each morning or afternoon session. If your child has a medical/dental appointment during
school hours, we ask that you come to the school office to collect her/him.
Medicines are not administered at this school. The only medicine provision is for children
suffering chronic illness and without this support they would not be able to attend school.
These illnesses are asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, etc.
All Council buildings have a no smoking policy therefore, no-one is allowed to smoke on or around the premises.
In an attempt to provide a safe and secure environment for your child, we do not permit you to
bring your dog into the grounds.
We also request that you do not bring your car into the playground under any circumstances during the school day.
The roads around the school are very narrow and quickly become congested. Please park with
consideration for our neighbours, other drivers and, of course, our children.
Only staff of the school and pupils are allowed access to the classrooms and offices. All parents
and visitors are requested to report to the Reception desk at the main entrance.
All visitors report to the school office and if they need to have access to the school, they will be
given an identification badge to wear. Anyone in the school not wearing such a badge will be immediately challenged.
We take your children’s safety seriously. We have at least three members of staff with up to date first aid training.
Like every other school we are susceptible to head lice. Should you find your child infected
please notify the school so that we may send out leaflets to the rest of the class. We are bound
by the LA’s policy on head lice and cannot request a visit from the school nurse for this reason.
Should you wish a copy of the LA’s policy please contact the Education Department at the Town Hall, Barking.
