Safeguarding

Health and Safety

At Antingham and Southrepps Primary School safety always takes priority. The Headteacher and the Governors make regular checks of the building, ensure that risk assessments are regularly updated and safety guidelines followed. We keep a copy of the school’s Health and Safety Policy in the school office for you to view should you wish to do so.

Please keep us updated about any medical requirements your child may need. Parents will need to complete a medical form from the school office for any child who needs to take medicine in school, including inhalers.

All accidents at school are recorded in our accident book. Mrs Flatman and Mrs Cork, our trained first aiders, will administer any treatment they feel is necessary and you will be informed at the end of the school day. If the injury requires further treatment or assessment you will be contacted immediately. Please ensure that we are kept up to date if there are any changes to your contact details.

We have regular fire drills each term, or whenever we have new staff joining us. We prepare the younger children for these events so they are not frightened, but if your child is particularly sensitive, please let the class teacher know.


Safeguarding Children

We all have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children during their time at our school. If you have any concerns about a child or adult, please speak to Mrs Emma Harding (Head of School and Lead Designated Professional for Safeguarding) or Mr Stephen Uttley (Deputy Designated Professional for Safeguarding), in person or by telephone on 01263 833282.

Our teachers, Governors and children have recently updated our Anti-bullying policy and have produced a child friendly leaflet. All visitors are asked to sign in and wear a lanyard so that all staff and children know that everyone who is on site is ‘safe’. All visitors are asked to carry our safeguarding leaflet which explains our safeguarding policies and our fire evacuation arrangements.
