Pupil Collection Policy
As a school, we are responsible for the welfare of our pupils and therefore have to consider what we believe is good practice in ensuring the safety of our pupils. We also have an obligation to alert relevant authorities should we believe a child’s welfare is at risk.
In setting our protocol for collecting children we have taken advice and guidance which states that it is for each school to decide and enforce its own pupil collection policy. Standish Lower Ground St Anne’s Policy is that parent/carers formalise collection arrangements in writing with school. To be clear, the school is not responsible for a child’s safety on his or her way home.
