Online Safety Information
Children at our school use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular online safety activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
Six Year 6 pupils visited Wheatley Park School, to complete Online Safety Ambassador training. Upon their return to school, they prepared and led an excellent assembly, sharing important messages they had learnt.

Health and Safety
We have regular visits from the Community Police Officer to deliver a programme of study developed by the Thames Valley Police. It seeks to make children aware of dangers around them and to foster a sense of responsibility as members of the community. Road safety training and cycling proficiency are also covered.
All children receive a medical examination before entering school. If a parent or teacher feels that an additional examination would be helpful, this may be arranged with the school nurse.
Routine eye checks for children in Reception are carried out by the school vision screening team.
Reception and Year 6 children are included in the National Data Collection for height and weight. These checks are carried out by the school nurse team.
All children are included in the flu immunisation programme which is delivered by the school nurse team.
Please note that the children should not wear jewellery or earrings to school. Sleepers may be worn but all children wearing them must be capable of removing them for PE lessons.
Staff are not permitted to administer medication to children unless authorised by parents to do so. An authority form must be obtained and completed and returned to school. Children on inhalers should be able to use them on their own.
We are unable to administer 3x a day medication.
