Safeguarding and safety for visitors

We hope that your visit will be enjoyable, informative and safe. Please read our visitor guidance.

Safeguarding on site

Adults visiting or working on the school site play an important part in the life of the school. Our Safeguarding Lead is Deputy Head, Mrs Nichol, who can be contacted via the main office. In her absence please contact one of our Safeguarding Deputy Leads who are Ms Chamberlain, Mr Nord, Mrs Baxendale or Ms Whittle-Richens.

Car Parking

If you are visiting by car, please park in our free campus car park. Please observe our 5 mph speed limit.


All visitors, and contractors coming into the school must report to Bamburgh Reception.

As a visitor you will be asked to sign in and be issued with a lanyard which must be worn during your visit, so that staff and students can see you are a visitor. Depending on the circumstances you may also be asked to show photo ID.

If you are a regular visitor to the school you will need to sign in on each occasion. When you leave the site please ensure that you sign out and return your lanyard.

Fire and Evacuation

If you are in school for the day please ensure you read the evacuation notice in the room you are in. If the alarm sounds for any reason follow the instructions. If you evacuate, please go to the assembly point in the playground at the front of the building. If you have students with you please ensure they leave quickly and calmly with you.
