We take great care in our safeguarding procedures at Manaccan School.  


  • All adults, staff and volunteers, who work unsupervised with children have undergone an Enhanced DBS Check.  (For more information on what this means, visit the Government website here)
  • Access for all parents and visitors is by buzzed entry through the main gate
  • Visitors are required to come to the office and sign in using the school's iPad signing in system
  • Parents are asked not to go into classrooms during the day
  • Fire drills are carried out each term and the Governing Body takes on the responsibility of regular security audits

Child Protection


Manaccan takes Child Protection issues very seriously.  


  • A copy of our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
  • Staff and Partners in Learning receive regular training in this area to fully develop their understanding
  • Children in care are closely monitored by class teachers, and the Child Protection Officer, and the school works hard to establish positive links with those agencies involved with supporting such children.

Medical Care


We are able to provide facilities in school for the treatment of minor injuries.  However, in some cases it may be necessary to send a pupil to hospital for treatment.  It is essential that parents leave an emergency telephone number with the school so that they can be contacted without delay.


Please let us know if your child suffers from any allergies.


We MUST be informed of Measles, German Measles, Mumps, Headlice, Ringworm, Impetigo, Chickenpox, Whooping Cough and Swine Flu immediately.

With regard to head lice please help us by checking your child’s head regularly.


Medicines will only be dispensed by members of the staff of the school if parents have signed a parental agreement form, available from the school office, and provided the medicine for their child.
