School Procedures


To keep all our children safe we have strict procedures in place for visitors, volunteers and parents:

  • All parents, volunteers and visitors who come into the main school MUST sign in at the main office.
  • Staff wear blue lanyards around school, visitors who can be in school unsupervised wear green lanyards and visitors who must be supervised in school wear red lanyards.
  • Mobile phones or recording devices should not be used by parents or visitors inside our school buildings.  
  • Regular volunteers are DBS checked and MUST have a visible green lanyard on them at all times so children are aware that they are safe to be around.
  • Staff and children have been told if lanyards are not visible, they will ask the adult to return to the school office so the correct procedures can be put in place.

Devon Mash

Devon's multi agency safeguarding hub is called MASH and its website has lots of advice if you are concerned about a child:


If you are concerned about the safety of a child in Devon or want to speak to someone, or if you are a child worried about your own safety, you can contact our Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) by:


If a child is at immediate risk contact the police on 999.

Operation Encompass


The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police.  Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.


Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.


We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.

County Lines

County Lines is when criminals from major cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, London and Birmingham expand their drug networks to other areas of the country.  This activity brings violence, exploitation and abuse to rural communities.  County Line networks are having a massive impact on rural communities.
