Health and Safety

We take pupil security very seriously. School gates are closed at 9am and our children are supervised at all times.

Health Care Plan for children can be arranged as required and we liaise closely with parents and carers regarding any allergies, illness and prescribed medicines from the doctor.

Castlebar has a behaviour policy for the school and some pupils will have Behaviour Management Plans to help to structure their behaviour. Team Teach training for staff runs throughout the school so staff use practiced techniques to keep pupils safe should they become distressed.
