Safety in the School
Authorised visitors to the School will be logged into and out of the premises and will be asked to wear their identity badges or be issued with School visitor badges. Unidentified visitors will be challenged by staff or reported to the Head teacher or School office. Carelessness in closing any controlled entrance will be challenged. The presence of intruders and suspicious strangers seen loitering near the School or approaching pupils, will be reported to the Police and the LA with a view to alerting other local schools through appropriate systems. Parents, carers or relatives may only take still or video photographic images of pupils in school or on school-organised activities with the prior consent of the school and then only in designated areas. All parents will be issued with a permission letter for consent of the use of images at the time of entry into school. For those parents who do not wish their children to be photographed or filmed and express this in the return of the relevant form, their rights will be respected.
