VISITING OR JOINING OUR SCHOOL

At Staplegrove we take safeguarding very seriously. 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.

Please be mindful that for everybody’s safety, identification procedures will be carried out. Visitors to the school will need to sign in and wear an identification badge during their time in the building. All supply teachers and contractors working on site must provide photo ID and DBS clearance. Visitors will be escorted around the site.

The internal school gates are kept closed during the school day. All visitors are asked to report to the main school office.  The main vehicle ‘in’ gate will be closed during the school day.

We take all aspects of safeguarding seriously, including the latest requirements to prevent children from being subjected to extreme or anti-radical behaviour.
