FIRST AID and MEDICAL, HEALTH and SAFETY, SAFEGUARDING

First Aid and Medical

Most of the school’s teachers and teaching assistants have a first aid qualification. The school office is a first port of call if a child is feeling unwell or needs first aid. The Appointed First Aider, a teaching assistant, is available if needed or when there are specified or prescription medicines to be administered.

Health and Safety

The Health and Safety Committee meets regularly to monitor health & safety procedures in school, and to ensure full and effective compliance with all health abd safety regulations. The school caretaker undertakes non-specialist regulatory checks. (e.g. fire alarm testing, electrical appliance testing, daily inspection for potential hazardous areas.)

Safeguarding

The correct adherence to policies and procedures in safeguarding matters and in safe recruitment is a legal requirement for all schools. Bronte strives to uphold a close awareness both in monitoring developments in legal requirements and in maintaining watchfulness on the part of all staff in matters of child protection. The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is the Headmistress. The Deputy DSL is Mrs Amanda Prescott.
