Safeguarding guidelines whilst on site

All families must be accompanied by a Berkhamsted employee to tour around the school.

The Berkhamsted Schools Group is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects staff and visitors to adopt a child-centred and co-ordinated approach to child protection and safeguarding.

  • Child Protection and Safeguarding
  • Any child can be abused and therefore has the right to be safeguarded.
  • Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility.
  • It is your duty to recognise and respond.
  • Maintain an ‘it could happen here’ attitude.
  • Please raise any concerns about a child or our safeguarding practice with the Headteacher of the School: 01494 726433.
  • If you have any concerns about a member of staff please refer to the Principal: 01442 358002.
Fire Evacuation Plan for today

There are no planned drills today. If the fire alarm sounds everyone is to evacuate.

Heatherton Staff (wearing blue Berkhamsted lanyards) will guide you out of your location through the nearest fire exits.

Please remain with the member of staff who is leading your tour as they will guide you to the meeting point on the playground at the back of the school (by Heatherton Park).  

It may be necessary to take a register.
