Health and Safety

Please note that parents/carers who allow their children to play on any of the school equipment, in the trees, or on the school grounds before or after the school day, do so at their own risk. Please do not allow children to play and/or walk on the wall by the infant path, to run and/or walk on the grass behind the wall or climb the trees. The risk of falling is significant.


The school premises are open for children to be on site from 8.40 am. We have noticed that some children are entering the school grounds or are on the pavement by the junior entrance before 8.40 am. Any children on site before 8.40 am should be attending Breakfast Club.


Please note that there is no staff in the yard prior to 8.40 am and therefore children should not be entering the school grounds. Similarly, there are no adults outside the junior gate who have responsibility for supervising children. It is not safe for the children to be outside the school gates, unsupervised prior to 8.40 am. Sketty Park Drive is a very busy road, please do not drop your children off on the yellow zig-zag lines, please park in a space that does not cause congestion, and ensure the children step out of the car onto the pavement at all times.


As an extra precaution to safeguard the children, staff are manning the school gates between 8.40 am and 8.55 am. Please note that the Key Stage 2 yard is manned from 8.40 am and children in Key Stage 2 can come onto the site on their own if this is preferable. However, the Foundation Phase yard is not manned. As a result, please do not leave Foundation Phase children unattended.
