Site Security

Site security

Springboard provides a secure site, but the site is only as secure as the people who use it. Therefore all people on the site have to adhere to the rules, which govern it. Laxity can cause potential problems to safeguarding. Therefore:

  • Doors should be closed to prevent intrusion but to facilitate smooth exits.
  • Visitors, volunteers and students only enter through the main entrance.
  • Children will only be allowed home with adults with parental responsibility or confirmed permission.
  • Empty classrooms should have closed windows.
  • Children should never be allowed to leave school alone during school hours, and if collected by an adult notify appropriate member of staff.

Should a child leave the school premises without permission then staff have been informed never to chase after a child, but rather to report immediately to the office. Then parents and police will be informed of the circumstances.
