At Brynteg School we aim to educate our pupils in a safe, caring and stimulating environment. We believe that children should have firm guidelines, know their boundaries and what to expect and what is expected of them in every circumstance. Children are rewarded for good behaviour and have a clear understanding of the consistent sanctions imposed when the rules are broken.
Our rules are simple:-
- Listen when other people are speaking.
- Speak positively to and about other
- Keep hands, feet and object to yourself.
- Follow instructions first time.
The school takes Health and Safety most seriously. Mr Rogers is our designated Health and Safety governor who regularly reports back. The school is secure from outside intrusion. All visitors must use the front entrance and make themselves known to a member of staff before proceeding with their intended business.
All external doors are closed at 9.00 a.m. and can only be opened from inside the building. Pupils who arrive late have to come to the main office.
We have had an effective CCTV system installed which provides 24 hour coverage around the whole school.
The All Wales Child Protection Procedures make it clear that schools have an important role to play in the protections of children against abuse. This is confirmed by the Local Authority School Child Protection Procedures, in conjunction with the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board, which set the necessary action to be carried out by staff.
Brynteg County Primary School therefore has a duty to refer any concerns about the well-being of pupils to the Safeguarding and Support Department for further advice.
Mrs R Connell is the designated person in charge of Child Protection and Mrs M Firth in her absence.
Pupils are encouraged to practice, extend and broaden their reading at home and your support as parents is vitally important.
All junior pupils will receive written homework at least once a week. The work should give parents the opportunity to see what has been covered and how well their child has coped.
Parents, school and LEA’s share legal responsibilities in respect of school attendance.
A child may be absent on any day: –
- When prevented from attending by sickness or any unavoidable cause.
- Exclusively set apart for religious observance by the religious body to which his/ her parents belong.
Regular attendance is most important. If your child is absent, please let us know the reason as soon as possible by a telephone call or a personal visit. On return to school your child should bring a written note or school absence form.
The Local Authority will have powers to issue Fixed Penalty Notices of £60 for unauthorised absence from school with effect from September 2014. These Fixed Penalty Notices could be issued to address any unauthorised absences from school in excess of five school days in one term. An information leaflet will soon be produced by Wrexham County Borough Council to provided further details.
