Stobhillgate First School provides a secure site, but the site is only as secure as the people who use it. Therefore, all people on the site have to adhere to the rules which govern it. This means:
A vast majority of those visiting school in a professional capacity, i.e. school nurse, peri teachers, etc have relevant clearance however this is checked prior to admittance. Staff within the school office are advised, where possible, when visitors are expected. All visitors must adhere to the visitor information document that is given to them on arrival.
The school has a health and safety policy which is reviewed annually by the relevant committee of school governors.
Each term there is a fire drill that practices efficient evacuation from the buildings. The school conducts an annual Fire Risk Assessment. We have a fire policy and an educational program around fire safety and children. The school also adheres to the emergency planning guidance issued by the Local Authority.
As the school is part of a shared site, joint site meetings take place to discuss any matters that may directly affect stakeholders of the school.
