We know that when children feel happy and safe they are likely to learn much more quickly and enjoy their school experience. So at Northern Saints we make sure that our Health and Safety responsibilities are fully met and that their classroom and school environment is of the highest standards. That’s why we are spending a considerable amount of money to upgrade the school facilities over the next 5 years. Over £1.9million has already been spent and working with the Church of England and through local partnerships we’ll continue to offer your children the best in the area.
Being careful with health and safety doesn’t mean wrapping kids in cotton wool. We think children should learn to control risk, not avoid it. So we encourage all of our children to join our wide range of extra-curricular sports and activities including residential challenges. We are supported by the Outward Bound Trust and the Terry Connor Adventurous Activities Bursary to provide increasingly challenging adventures as children progress through our school. If you choose our school we expect that you will support us to get children out there.
Our carefully structured Safeguarding Policy and our SEAL curriculum support children in keeping safe in school, on the internet and in the community. It’s important that you know that keeping children safe underpins what we do. We received our Healthy Schools Award in 2015. Here’s a copy of our latest school lunch survey.
Whilst PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities are heavily subsidised and our new playground gym a keeps children fit throughout the day. Governors also know that children need healthy school meals and snacks throughout the day. Our school kitchen has the top Hygiene Rating of 5.
Keeping parents informed about health issues is also a necessary part of our work. Click here for a copy of Health Advice on childhood illnesses
