Safeguarding

Issues we have discussed with the children. Please talk to your child/children about these topics.

 

Digital Leaders

We continue to train ten children in S3 to become our digital leaders. The programme is sponsored by Childnet and has given the children the power to shape and improve their own online communications. They play an important role in educating their peers. Two children are assigned to each year group from J3 upwards, strengthening their knowledge whilst online.

Passwords

If you have assigned someone new to collect your child from school, please inform the school office / form teaches as we have a password system in place. A reminder also that we operate a “No Phone Zone” on School premises and very much appreciate your cooperation.

Please note school gates will be closed at 3.50pm to ensure security and safeguarding of our After School Club children. Therefore, children should not be on site (equipment or Astro) after their school day has ended, unless participating in clubs or activities.

 

Registration and Lateness

Just a quick reminder that the School Day starts at 8.45 and the school gates will be closed at 8.50. all children should be in School for Registration at 8.50am.

Please do not leave younger siblings unaccompanied in the car at any time when using the school carpark to collect older children.

 

Lateness

Due to increased Government legislation and School Inspection, School now has to record and report any holidays taken by pupils during term time as unauthorised absence, in accordance with Bexley Council guidelines. The Education Welfare Officer visits us half termly to look at our records.
