This is an issue which affects the everyday running of school and school asks the whole parent community in helping us to be vigilante and aware of potential dangers.

  • The school main gate is locked at 8.55am and remains so until 3.20pm
  • Any parent who wishes to see a person within school is to enter only through the main reception as all cloakroom doors are locked internally for the duration of teaching periods. This does not affect fire exits as they are situated in every classroom and can only be opened from inside.
  • No parents or family member should attempt to engage pupils in conversation at break times. Children should not be given the impression that it is ‘Okay to talk to people at the school fence.’ In doing this you may endanger another child who, watching this happen, has no hesitation in approaching a stranger and then facing the possible consequence of this action. Reinforce the message of Stranger Danger with your own child.
