Safety in and around the school

 


SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

 Unless safely dressed, children may not be able to take part in P.E. lessons. It is the policy of Lincolnshire County Council that no jewellery of any kind, including stud ear-rings are permitted to be worn in the swimming pool.

During sunny weather you may like to teach your child how to apply sunscreen. If your child brings sun-screen to school, please label it with their name!

PERSONAL PROPERTY

All pupils are expected to take responsibility for the safety of their own property. The school cannot be responsible for watches or jewellery. Earrings and other jewellery can cause danger in P.E. and games lessons. It is preferred that they are not worn to school at all.

Money should not be brought to school unless requested for a school activity, when it should be in a clearly marked envelope and posted into one of our two payment boxes..

We advise you not to let your child bring toys to school. They can be easily lost or broken in a playground.

PARKING OUTSIDE SCHOOL

The position of the school makes parking difficult. Please would parents not park or turn in the school grounds, and will parents who deliver and collect children by car please use the Tesco car park (not Parent & Child or Disabled spaces please), both for the safety of children and the convenience of our neighbours. MadCaps  mini buses deliver and collect in the morning and evening and must have a clear access.

Health and Safety Policy.

The School has a comprehensive Health and Safety Policy relating to all school activities including educational visits. You can obtain a copy of the full policy from the school.

Personal Accident Insurance for Pupils.

Parents my wish to enquire through insurance brokers if they wish to avail themselves of this cover.

MEDICINES

If a child is on a course of medicine it is usually advisable for the child to remain at home until it is completed. Children suffering from Asthma have a particular requirement to access their inhalers at all times. We ensure that children keep inhalers in their possession, and administer to themselves at need. For our youngest children (who might have trouble looking after an inhaler), teachers may keep inhalers in a suitable place, known to the child, from where the child can easily obtain their medication when needed.
