Personal Property

It must be emphasised that we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to any personal possession brought on to the school premises.

Watches

Governors have approved the wearing of basic, inexpensive, analogue watches to help the children learn to read the time. They must be removed for PE. It must be stressed that the school does not accept responsibility for their damage or loss.

Mobile Phones

If, in exceptional circumstances, it is necessary for a child to bring a phone to school, it should be handed in at the school office at the start of the day. All phones should be clearly labelled with the child’s name. Phones will be available for pupils to collect at 3.30 p.m.

Road Safety and Parking

We would like to ask for your continued co-operation in exercising every care in parking outside school when dropping off or collecting children. 

Please do not park in the school car park or use this area, or the school entrance, as a turning point as the space is very limited and it restricts the access of emergency vehicles. Children are not allowed to enter or exit the school via the staff car park. 

We encourage our pupils to walk to school and actively seek ways to reduce the number of car journeys made to and from school. 

Foxdell is a ‘Bike it’ school which means we promote training in the safe use of bicycles and encourage our pupils to ride regularly. Following training, pupils in Year 5 and 6 are allowed to travel to school on their bikes if they have their parent’s permission. Many of our younger pupils have also expressed a desire to bring their bikes but this should only happen if they are accompanied by an adult. All pupils must bring a lock to secure their bike and take the bike home each night. Whilst we will make every effort to ensure the security of the bikes on school premises we cannot be responsible for any loss or damage.

School Security

Side entrance gates are kept locked during school hours. All visitors must report to reception.There is a coded entry system in operation at the main entrance. Visitors are requested to sign in and out of our visitor’s book and to wear a badge. Emergency evacuation procedures are in place.All employees and volunteers must undergo a DBS check.
