The gates are open only at peak times; otherwise entry is via a push-button telephone connected to the Office during School hours and to the After-School classroom after office hours.
Fire drills are carried out regularly and all fire appliances are inspected annually. The School is inspected by the local Fire Officer to ensure that it meets all the requirements of the Fire Department. The fire alarm is tested weekly.
The School maintains and promotes a strong Safeguarding Policy. There are three designated staff responsible for Child Protection and all staff undergo basic awareness training.
