Health and Safety: Premises

Mr Johnson, our Site Manager, does a wonderful job of looking after our premises and ensuring that they are clean, tidy and safe.

In order to keep children safe, the gates are closed and locked when the SLT member (usually Miss Matthews) leaves the playground in the morning. After the gates are closed, visitors must use the entry buzzer to speak to office staff. The office staff can then track visitors through CCTV until they arrive at the main office.

Mr Johnson carries out a daily perimeter check to ensure that the fencing and gates remain secure. He also checks for any debris that may have been left by intruders ... or foxes! Throughout the day Mr Johnson fixes things, PAT tests electrical appliances, liaises with contractors to make sure that machinery and systems are in good working order. This includes monitoring such things as the ventilation system,  water purity, heating, alarm systems, drains, sewage and many other glamorous tasks! One of our governors, Mr Collymore carries out a termly Health and Safety Check and liaises with Mr Johnson to ensure that everything is safe and fit for purpose.
