Safeguarding Advice

Safeguarding Advice for Visitors and Volunteers


Our school is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare and expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. It is our willingness to work in a safe manner and challenge inappropriate behaviour that underpins this commitment.


By signing in and out of the visitors’ book you are agreeing to follow the advice within this leaflet. All visitors must wear the visitor’s badge provided by reception. An adult without a badge will be accompanied to the school’s reception to confirm they have signed in.


Visitors must be accompanied at all times by a member of the school staff. You will be issued with a red visitors badge.


Unsupervised visitors: If your visit involves unsupervised contact with young people you will be asked to show the photographic ID badge provided by your employer and written confirmation that appropriate DBS checks have been made. Depending on your role and the organisation you are from you may be required to show your Enhanced DBS Certificate. We will note down the DBS number and date issued but will not make a copy of it.  You will also need to read and understand the school’s Code of Conduct for Adults and Part 1 of the DFE’s Guidance, ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (2016). The school’s Child Protection Policy is available on the school’s website.  You will be issued with a green visitors pass.


If you have ANY concerns about a child’s welfare or well being or have a concern about the behaviour of any adult within the school towards a child:

The school has a full code of conduct to encourage safer working practices for all adults working with young people, including advice regarding ‘e-safety’.
