 Our school is secure during the day, so all visitors are asked to report to the main entrance. Please be mindful that for everybody's safety, identification procedures will be carried out; a copy of which are displayed by the office for your information.

All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.

Volunteers, regular parent voluteers, outside agency staff and students will also be required to apply for and supply their DBS or in the case of an agency or Educational Establishment a letter of compliance.
