Pupil Well Being

Pupils' Illnesses or Injury

If your child is ill or sustains an injury, we will contact you or another of the emergency contact numbers you have given us. Pupils who are unwell will be cared for by our Welfare Assistant; cuts and grazes are given simple treatment. If your child is well enough to attend school but needs to take medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor, our Welfare Assistant can administer the medicine provided that a parental consent form has been filled in. Please let us know if your child has any specific medical needs so that we can draw up a Healthcare Plan together.

Hometime Safety and Collection

Pupils are dismissed from class from 3.35pm onwards. Parents and older brothers or sisters are asked to wait on the school playground. There are several staff on duty at this time each day. Children who have not been collected are taken to the school reception and a member of staff will telephone parents.

There is normally a School Crossing Patrol Warden available for pupils crossing Maple Drive and one for those crossing Derby Road. It is important that pupils use the crossing place and listen to the Warden’s instructions. There is also a traffic light controlled crossing point on Derby Road at the junction of Station Road.

Parents are asked to avoid bringing cars to school; it is far healthier for pupils to walk and makes arriving and leaving school far safer for them and others. Cars should never be parked on the zigzag lines or in designated bus bays; parents who do so are breaking the law and may receive a fine; police and traffic wardens regularly patrol the area.

The school car park is for staff use and delivery vehicles only.


The school follows and implements the requirements of Derby Safeguarding Children Board. Whilst the school is mindful of the need to share things with parents which relate to their children, should a situation arise whereby a child discloses information to us, or we suspect that the child may be subject to emotional, physical or sexual abuse, our duty lies with protecting the child.  By law, we are instructed to inform the social services care team about our concern.
