At Latchmere we have a long and strong tradition of good relationships with parents. In order to safeguard the children, our security measures have become more rigid with doors kept locked during the school day and security codes for staff to use when they enter and leave the building. We also have a CCTV system which is monitored throughout the day.
In the morning, EYFS and KS1 parents accompany their children onto the playground whilst KS2 parents say goodbye to their children in the parents’ waiting area. In the afternoon parents stay in this area until the bell goes at 3.20 pm / 3:30 when they may enter the playground to collect their children. Parents entering the school during the day must sign the visitors’ book in the entrance lobby and collect a visitor’s badge if entering the site through the security doors.
