Fire and Visitors:  If you hear a loud electronic bell ringing presume it is the fire alarm. On hearing the alarm, evacuate the school by the nearest exit and congregate on the Playground. If you discover a fire, press the Fire Alarm Button indicted by the sign and found at all main exit points.

Railway Safeguarding:

Due to the very high level of trespassing on the tracks by young people in our local area, Network Rail in partnership with Learn Live are working to help raise awareness to students across the UK educating them about the dangers of the train tracks through interactive digital delivery. As a result, we are sharing the relevant safety videos with you so you may watch it at home.

The session is less than 15 minutes and explains why it is important to stay safe near the tracks.

Over 14 million students, parents and teachers from across the UK have watched these videos which has led to a significant decrease in the number of trespasses in their area through watching the latest rail safety videos.

Remember 15 mins can help save lives and provide important safety information to young people and their parents.

We have made things easier for you to watch the free safety videos by just entering the email railsafety@learnliveuk.com into the I am registered field when you first watch the videos.
