At Tornedale we are constantly reviewing and striving to improve our Safeguarding policies and procedures and we have recently considered the safety of dropping off and collecting pupils by older siblings. As a school we recognize and sympathise with the often complex pressures faced by our families in balancing work and childcare and therefore politely request that siblings collecting younger family members are 14 years of age or older and that parents now complete a permission slip which are available from the school office.

From March 2015, the Government implement the new Working Together to Safeguarding Children 2015 Statutory Guidance replacing the 2013 guidance.
