On Arrival

All visitors must report to reception and sign in on the InVentry flat screen. Visitors should not move around school unaccompanied. A visitors badge will be provided and this must be worn where it can be seen at all times. Any visitor not displaying their ID badge will be challenged by staff. Staff not challenging unidentified visitors will be neglecting their duty to ensure school security and pupil safety.

On leaving the building the visitor must sign out manually on the flat screen or by scanning the bar code on the ID badge.


Acceptable Use Policy

As a school we work hard to educate children about being safe on the internet including the acceptable use of social media and would accept that all stakeholders also adhere to the acceptable use policy (please see office staff for a copy).


Car Parking Charge

All visitors must be aware that they may be liable for a £2.00 per day charge to park on the Henry Whipple Site.


Where do I go at break times, where are the toilets located and can I get refreshments

At break times you can use the staff room. Tea and coffee are available at a small charge of 20p per drink. The adult toilet is situated in the corridor leading to the hall. There are adult toilets in each hub, these have white doors.


Meal Arrangements

If you would like a meal, please let the office know the office by 9.30am and pay the appropriate price for the chosen food.


Going off site at lunch time

If you need to go out for a particular reason, please discuss this with your named contact and you will need to sign out and sign back in when you come back to school.


Dress Code
