Health and Safety

The aim of our school is to create an atmosphere of carefulness both in and out of school, this is for all users of the school, children, school staff, parents and the community.

This carefulness includes:

• The ability of each individual to protect him/her self
• Concern and consideration for the safety of others
• Knowledge of what to do in certain situations
• Alertness and control
• Cultivation of good habits

For children, good safety habits are taught as part of the whole curriculum. This can be through topics, for instance, a safe place to play which could include Science, English or Technology, and the involvement of outside agencies such as the police, fire brigade, road safety officer etc.

It might also be through a health related topic such as smoking.

At Bradworthy School children are encouraged to develop healthy habits through good health and hygiene routines, for example regular exercise or care of themselves, personal hygiene etc. A positive policy for healthy eating is maintained at school.

Collective Worship


The Collective Worship Policy at Bradworthy School follows the guidance of:

• Circular 1/94 Religious Education and Collective Worship
• Devon Local Education Authority Guidelines on Collective Worship in Maintained Schools

"In the light of the Christian traditions of Great Britain, collective worship is to be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character." (Education Reform Act 1988, Education Act 1993)

Bad Weather

In certain circumstances it may not be possible for the school to open or we may be forced to close early. Obviously the school will only close if there really is no alternative and as you can see we will attempt to stay open wherever possible - so we can have lots of fun !!!.

If the school is not able to open, for example as a result of heavy snowfall, there will be an announcement on local radio ( either Radio Devon or Heart FM ) so please tune in for information.
