The school has a high level of security, with the perimeter of the buildings being protected by a security fence and all doors into the school being of a secure steel design. We also have 24 hour CCTV in operation throughout the school building and in the school yards. Visitors wear visible identification badges when inside the school and are only permitted to access the building unsupervised with the correct DBS certifications.
To protect the students, staff and the building during the school day, once the students have been allowed into the building at the start of a school session, all outside doors are on an automatic time lock. This is not a danger to the children, as in the event of an emergency, students can quickly leave the building by the emergency exits leading out to the secure area at the side of the building.
There are well publicised fire evacuation procedures and regular fire drills are conducted throughout the school year. Students have their own W.C facilities which are attended by staff when they are available for use at break and lunchtime. We have dedicated members of staff who act as qualified first aid providers in cases of injury/medical emergency and also keep an emergency defibrillation device help securely in our school office for cardiac emergencies.
