John McGlashan College is committed to Health and Safety. We have been reviewing our processes to ensure we have robust systems in place to protect students, staff, visitors and contractors.
Visitors include parents and extended family members, board members and volunteers.
Visitors that are going into the school or the school grounds during the hours of 8.30am and 3.30pm MUST sign in and sign out of the school office. This is important to us so that we know who is on-site in the event of an emergency.
If visitors are just coming to the school office to drop something off/pick something up, they don’t need to sign in or sign out.
We hope you are as committed to Health and Safety as we are, and follow this school rule.
We have also been in the process of reviewing all contractors who are engaged to undertake work for us. It’s important to ensure we all have a high standard of safety and this has involved re-approving our contractors.
As part of this, under the Vulnerable Children Act 2014, those contractors working at John McGlashan College who have (or the potential to have) unsupervised access to students are required to pass a Police vetting check; this is mandatory under the Act.
Contractors will also be required to sign in and sign out during school hours.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Callum Hayde, Director of Business.
