At Sandy Lane Primary School we do a lot of work on supporting our children in aiming to keep themselves safe in our world.
Our curriculum contains input on:
- NSPCC PANTS
- Road Safety
- e-safety or internet safety
- Relationships and trusted adults
- ‘Stranger danger’
- ‘Life Skills’
We link with other agencies such as our local PCSO and others who can support us in delivering clear messages of actions our children can take to keep themselves safe.
We record all incidents which concern us and inform parents / carers and multi-agencies as necessary and in line with our Safeguarding Policy.
Bracknell Forest Council also have clear guidelines for keeping children and adults safe in schools. Here is their statement with regard to visitors and parents. It primarily requests role modelling to children and secondly provides clear guidance on the treatment of staff in school and online:

Sandy Lane Primary School is committed to safeguarding children. We work closely with all multi-agencies to ensure that children are protected from risk of emotional and physical harm or risk of harm, or at risk from neglect. We follow stringent procedures for the recruitment of staff and for visitors entering our school. Our site is monitored by CCTV and there is a high staff presence at all times in the school day. We also have regular patrols by community multi-agencies, such as our local police.
