Safety and Security 

 Available at Reception
Please note that if you do not have a security disc on your vehicle the security guard will stop your vehicle and ask you for a temp disc, which must be collected at reception and handed to the security guard on your exit of the school.  Please ensure that should someone else be collecting your child on your behalf they have to report to reception to get a temp disc to hand in at security.  

You can still purchase a security disc from reception, should you require one.  Please note that you can buy as many as you need to ensure easy access in and out of the school.
