Aspirational opportunities for all, through the breath of God


At St George's School we operate a culture of safety where Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils is our first priority. We undertake annual training to ensure all staff understand and implement school policies and procedures linked to keeping our children safe. All staff proactively promote children’s welfare and are committed to listening to children and developing our partnership with parents. This includes following safer recruitment and vetting, having statutory policies linked to Safeguarding (which includes Child Protection and that has now been updated to include having an understanding of the Prevent Duty). Wider policies link to the acceptable use of technology (e-safety), Equality and Diversity and a staff handbook that sets out clear expectations for all staff, including how to whistle-blow.  As a school community we all have a responsibility to safeguard our children and below are a range of policies and procedures to support this.  



Children should be in class by 8.45am each school day for registration.  If your child is absent from school you must report this to the school office via telephone, text or email by 9am on each day of absence, stating the reason for absence and the approximate day of return.  


Entrances and exits

Visitors are required to report to the office before entering the school, where they are signed in and given an identification badge. Visitors must also sign out upon leaving.

Visitors must wear identification badges at all times. All visitors to the site will be asked if they hold a valid DBS certificate which must be produced on their first visit to the school.


Children leaving school during and at the end of the school day

If your child needs to leave during the school day (to attend a Doctors appointment for example) they must be signed out of school by the person collecting them.  This is then recorded on our register.

If the adult collecting a child changes, the office must be informed, where possible, at least an hour before pick up, in order that the class teacher can be made aware. If the correct adult does not arrive, and we have not been informed, the child will not be released. This applies at the end of the school day.
