From January 2018, we will be making security changes to the College’s premises to improve our safeguarding procedures.
These are as follows:
1. Car Park Barrier: A barrier will be operational on the car park entrance. This will be open for drop off prior to the start of the College day until 9.15am and for collection from 4.20pm. Other than this, parents will be asked to drop off and collect their son or daughter from the front of the College. The Car Park will not be accessible for parent outside the times stated above for this purpose. These times may be subject to change as we embed the new system.
If parents are coming in for an appointment during the day with a staff member, there will be access control at the barrier. Parents will be able to access the main building from the car park.
The current arrangements for signing cars in at reception will still be in operation.
2. Pedestrian access from the road will be via the front entrance only. There will be security staff on the entrance and students will be required to show their lanyard on arrival, in addition to wearing it whilst on the premises. Visitors will be directed to the Reception.
We hope that both of these developments will increase the safety and security for all who use the College premises.
