Safety at School

Parents or Carers visiting the school

Parents and carers must only enter School via the main office. All visitors to School must use the ‘signing in’ procedures in operation at the time of their visit. All adults in school have responsibility for the safety of all school users. Governors conduct a termly Health and Safety tour of the premises and receive a termly report from the Head teacher on all Safety issues.  

Fire Drills

Fire Drills for all children and staff are held termly. An annual Health and Safety audit is conducted by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council. Food preparation areas are inspected by the Local Authority. We have consistently received a 5 Star rating, the highest available. A responsible adult MUST collect children at the end of the normal School day; this applies to all year groups up to and including Year 4. Families may use their discretion in Year 5 and 6, but in any case should inform School if and adult will not be collecting their child, or if they are varying their normal arrangements. Arrangements for collecting children should be very clear, especially during the ‘darker’, winter months.  

Safety

Parents and carers should be aware that children will not normally be allowed to walk home after the completion of an evening or After School Activity, without specific written consent. Parents, including Nursery parents, must not bring their cars into the school site, including our access road, between 8.25am and 4.30pm.  

Disabled Parking

For children with a disability there are a small number of marked parking places that parents or carers can access to assist their child into school safely. If these are not all required for pupils use then a ‘pass’ is available from the Head teacher that should be displayed on the windscreen of a vehicle if access to school is required because that parent or carer has a disability.  

Traveling to school by bike

Footpaths should be used to reach the playgrounds and not the central roadway. Cyclists must dismount on reaching the school site. Scooters, roller boots, in-line skates and any other wheeled items must not be used within our site.   Children wishing to travel to school by bike (or scooter!) should first complete the consent form held in the school office.  

Pets

Dogs, and other animals, are not allowed on the school site, except with the permission of the Head. We welcome trainee dogs who are learning how to support partial sighted or hearing individuals, as well as dogs from the Police and other services. Please contact school if this is a concern.  

Collecting and dropping your child off

We encourage all parents and children to walk to school. Parking is particularly difficult on both sides of our site and consideration and extreme care is urged from all car users. There is a speed limit of 20-mph along Flatts Lane. Parents using Holmefields Road are asked to use the mini roundabout for turning and to use the designated parking bays. Please do not park on the pavements, grass verges and yellow zig-zag lines. Our Crossing Patrols on Flatts Lane and Bankfields Road are from 8.30 to 9.10 each morning and 3.15 to 3.35 each evening. There are no Crossing Patrols at lunchtime or for children taking part in After School Clubs or returning later from educational visits.  

Educational visit

Educational visits are very carefully planned by teachers, in accordance with our approved Visits Policy. This document can be obtained from the School Office. You will be asked for your written permission at the beginning of each year to allow your child to take part in visits and activities off the school site during the year ahead. Please return it to school promptly.  

Security at Normanby

Security is taken very seriously in our school. All of our buildings are fully enclosed by our security fence. No external, classroom door can be opened from the outside. Children arriving after 9.00am and all parents and visitors may enter only via the Main Entrance, which is controlled by a security device. The school is fully alarmed against intruders outside of normal school hours.  

Security

Smoking or the consumption of alcohol is not permitted on any part of our site.
