Keeping Your Child Safe

Keeping Children Safe is Everybody’s Business

Still image for this video
The Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) has launched a public awareness campaign ‘Keeping Children Safe is Everybody’s Business’. The aim is to raise community awareness of what to do if you are worried about a child and most importantly to encourage members of the public to call Birmingham City Council’s Children’s Advice & Support Service to report their concerns, so action can be taken to safeguard and protect the child.

Keeping your child safe and healthy is our prime concern at Greet.  Below are some of the ways in which we keep your children safe:

 

Road Safety

Increasing the number of children who walk and cycle to school, is one of our targets to help make Greet a sustainable school as this not only reduces the traffic congestion around the school, it reduces pollution and it also provides your child with some exercise which is vital for everyone.  Whilst walking your child to school, teach your child about road safety and traffic awareness.

 

We have a lollipop man outside the school  who is available to aid your child to cross the road safely.  If you travel by car, please park well away from the school entrance for the sake of the safety of our pupils.  Zig-Zag lines are in force around the school to remind you of this.

 

We also take part in the Bikeability Training which is aimed to train children how to stay safe on their bikes.

Medicines

 

Please inform the school if there are any changes to your child’s health which the school should know about.  Our Medical Needs Team, constantly update our Medical Needs registers and check any medicines the children should have in school for e.g. epi-pens, asthma inhalers, piriton etc. 

 

If a child is receiving on-going medication, parents are allowed to come into school by prior written arrangement to administer this completing a record of “Medication To Be Administered,” form.  Medication cannot be administered by school staff without prior agreement; please visit the school office to discuss this. 

 

Greet is a nut free zone because we have a number of children with nut allergies, some of whom can have severe allergic reactions to even the smell of nuts.  It is important to ensure that all food stuffs particularly packed lunches do not contain nuts either in their whole form or cooked within other foods such as cereal bars etc.

E-Safety

 

E-Safety stands for Electronic Safety so this means keeping safe on the internet as well as on all electronic devices such as mobile phones, television etc.

Fire Safety

 

Fire Safety across the school is taken very seriously so the school undertakes weekly testing of both the fire alarm bells and sprinkler tank.  All fire exit doors are serviced and checked regularly to make sure they are working correctly.  As well as this, fire risk assessments are carried out on all the school buildings and its playgrounds.  Each building has its own fire drill practices where the children evacuate the building and assemble in the playground.
