Safeguarding and Safety Information for Visitors

We hope that your visit will be enjoyable, informative and safe.

Please help us by reading and complying with this guidance which is intended to ensure your health and safety, and that of our children and staff,  whilst at Charlton Kings Infants’ School.

If you have any questions after reading this, please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff to help you.  Please wear your visitor’s badge at all times when on site and return the badge and sign out when leaving.

Security

All visitors, supply staff, student teachers and contractors coming into the school must report to the reception (main building).  You will be asked to sign in and be issued with a badge which must be worn prominently so that staff and pupils can see you are a visitor.  Depending on the circumstances you may also be asked to show identification and your DBS certificate.

If you are a regular visitor to the school you will need to sign in on each occasion.  When you leave the site please ensure that you sign out and return your badge.

Fire and Evacuation

If you have a host they will explain and guide you through any emergency procedures.  If you are in school for the day please ensure you read the evacuation notice in the room you are in.  If the alarm sounds for any reason follow the instructions.  If you have students with you please ensure they leave quickly and calmly with you.

First Aid

We have several first aid staff, please alert a member of staff if you feel unwell and they will call for assistance for you.  Alternatively, please go to reception.

Contractors must ensure that they are fully conversant with the safety rules and regulations to be observed by contractors working on site.

Safeguarding

Adults visiting or working on the school site play an important part in the life of the school.  You can play a part in keeping students safe whilst working at or visiting the school by observing the following guidelines:

  • If you have any concerns that a student may be at risk of harm report it immediately to Mrs Jones, the Designated Lead for Child Protection.  Do not discuss your concerns with the child and do not carry out an investigation.

  • Do not initiate verbal or physical contact with children unless it is appropriate and part of the agreed reason for your visit.

Further details about all this information can be found on the school website in the policies area: http://www.ckis.org.uk/page/?title=Policies&pid=23
