Please help the school to promote child safety by being both safety conscious and considerate when dropping off and picking up your child. There is no parking available for parents in the school grounds, apart from one disability carpark. This is only to be used by a parent/parent who has a child with a disability. We are lucky having three school gates - Ranolf Street, Seddon Street and Carnot Street. Please think of others when dropping off and collecting your child and be very aware of children at all times.
Talk to your child about “stranger danger”. If they walk to school encourage them to walk with others.
Talk to your child about strategies to deal with approaches by strangers eg.
- say ‘no’
- note car numbers and colour etc
- report incidents etc
Ensure your childs know the arrangements for going home, especially if there is a change from the usual procedure. If they have any problems tell them to let a teacher know.
We all have a responsibility towards child safety in our community.
