Visitor Information




The welfare of our children at Gorse Ride Schools is our paramount concern.  We want all our children to be safe and to feel safe.    

Upon arrival, all visitors must report to either the Infant Reception Office or the Junior Reception Office where they will be required to sign in and will be issued with a Visitor Pass.   Visitor Passes must be worn and displayed prominently at all times.

Whilst on school premises, ALL visitors are required to :

  • dress appropriately

  • use appropriate language at all times

  • use adult toilets only

  • treat everyone with respect and tolerance

  • immediately inform one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads if a child makes a disclosure or if you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child

Whilst on school premises, ALL visitors must not : 

  • instigate verbal or physical contact with pupils unless it is appropriate and a part of the agreed reason for your visit

  • give any personal information to pupils (eg : phone number, email address, social media user names)

  • smoke or use e-cigarettes/vapes 


Thank you for your co-operation and for supporting the school’s safeguarding procedures.
