PROTOCOL FOR VISITING THE SCHOOL

There is nothing we value more highly than the protection of our students. With that in mind, we ask every visitor to school to bring along the following documents, so that we are able to carry out our due diligence to safeguard our students.

  • a current photo form of identification, for example a passport or driving licence;
  • a current DBS. This might be the original document or the code for the update service that we might undertake our own up-to-date check on your arrival.

We ask all visitors for these documents. The school will retain a copy of these documents to remove the need for these documents to be produced on future visits.

COLLEAGUES FROM OTHER SCHOOLS

As a DfE designated Teaching School, and committed widely to working with the wider profession to share outstanding practice, we are always receptive to requests to visit the school to see some of the school’s practice. Whilst we welcome general visits warmly, visitors may wish to explore some of the many things about which we are most proud, including:

  • establishing a culture of ever extending achievement;
  • our commitment to high quality, rigorous and imaginative teaching;
  • the work we undertake with trainee teachers and Newly Qualified Teachers to establish them in the profession;
  • developing leaders with an all-embracing and unquenchable passion for school improvement;
  • our pervasive approach to SMSC and British values in assemblies and more widely in the curriculum;
  • the quality of literacy in our curriculum.

Of course, the above is an indicative, rather than exhaustive, list and we are very happy to speak further with colleagues in other schools about how we might best be able to assist them. To do so, please complete the online form here.
