Safer Recruitment Processes and Visitors to the School

The school is secure during the school day, so all visitors are asked to report to the main entrance on St Mary’s Road.  Please be mindful that for everybody’s safety, identification procedures will be carried out; a copy of which are displayed in the school reception for your information. 

All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school.  At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.
