The Governing Body assures all visitors, workers and volunteers a warm welcome to Hollies Pupil Referral Unit whatever the purpose of their visit.

The school has a legal duty of care for the health, safety, security and wellbeing of all students and staff. This duty of care incorporates the duty to ‘safeguard’ all students from subjection to any kind of harm, abuse or nuisance.

You have a personal responsibility to comply with the school’s safety policies in order to ensure your personal safety and that of other. These will be made available for your inspection on request.

There can be no complacency where child protection and safeguarding procedures are concerned.

This guidance ensures that Hollies is a safe environment for learning.

In the event of a visit to the school premises, on arrival you will be asked to sign in at reception and collect a visitor’s badge. It is imperative that you wear the badge at all times during your visit to the school and that it is visible. Please ensure that you sign out when exiting the building and hand the visitor’s badge back to reception.

Please take care of your valuables. The school cannot be held responsible for any personal effects.

The school operates a No Smoking Policy.

We expect that appropriate behaviour/language should be maintained at all times on the school premises.


Child Protection

We have a responsibility to protect our staff and students from violence and will not tolerate any form of violence at any time.

Ms Lockett and Ms Morris are the designated officers for Child Protection.

Should you hear or see something that gives you cause for concern regarding the safety of a student, please report this immediately to the designated child protection officers or a member of senior staff.
