This morning all of our children and staff received a safety briefing from the contractors Education Officer, Fiona Gush. It was a very effective briefing which was split into 2 different sessions for our 2 different key stages.
The children learned about how the contractors keep safe whilst being on site and the children were told that they are not to go on site due to the possible dangers. It was explained that the site boundary walls may have peepholes for the children to look through but under no circumstances were they to enter the site. we do not want any terrible accidents to happen. The children were also briefed to get their parents and carers to phone the number displayed on the entrances of the site or the local police if they see anybody on site without a Balfour Beattie Jacket on.
I am grateful for this session as we of course take Health and Safety seriously here at GBP and the contractor is renowned for its safe practices which is brilliant.
Further education sessions for each year groups will take place during the next year whilst the contractors are on site. The children will get a good learning experience from this next exciting phase.
