Safeguarding your child
Whitmore High School is committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual student, and one in which students feel secure, are encouraged to talk and are listened to.
Safeguarding and Safety Information for Visitors
- All visitors will be required to sign in at Reception upon arrival and to wear an ID badge.
- The ID badge must be clearly visible at all times.
- On departure all visitors must sign out and hand back their ID badge before leaving the premises.
Once visitors are collected from reception they must remain with the nominated member of staff at all times; exceptions to this will be arranged prior to the visit and appropriate checks will be carried out in advance.
If the fire alarm sounds during your visit you must leave the building using the closest exit with the member of staff you are visiting. You will be escorted to the assembly point.
If you have safeguarding concerns, please refer these to Mrs Young directly who is the school’s designated safeguarding lead.
