Silkstone Common Junior And Infant School

Health & Safety

 

Safety inside/outside the school

The school has security locks on both entrances and the perimeter of the school grounds is fenced on all sides. All gates into the school are normally locked during school hours. There are electronically operated gates at the main school entrance. Use the buzzer to ask for the side gate to be opened if you visit school during the day.

In the interest of the safety of the school children and other Moorend Lane users please do not park outside the school when delivering/collecting a child/children as this creates a road hazard.

Please do not wait for your child outside the school gates as this can be equally dangerous if your child rushes to you. Please come onto the school premises.

Snowy weather

Early morning heavy snow causes chaos to just about everyone including those who work in school. If there is enough snow to cause disruption, parents will receive a text message advising them of a later start time or if the school will be closed.   Alternatively tune into Radio Sheffield or Dearne FM for information on the local schools.

Health

The health of children at school is of great importance to us. Cold tap water is available in all classrooms and children can drink water at any point during lessons. The school takes part in a 'healthy eating' initiative and drinks and sweets are no longer sold from a 'tuckshop'.

What about the wearing of jewellery in school?

The wearing of jewellery in school is discouraged. It can be a safety hazard at playtimes. Jewellery must not be worn during P.E. lessons. Where ears have been pierced the stud type of earring is recommended rather than the ring type.
