Visitors & Security
The management of visitors is a fundamental part of ARIS security policy for safeguarding and protecting both people and property.
A visitor to the campus is defined as any person who is not a student or a staff member of ARIS. This includes parents, visiting speakers and academics, helpers, official inspectors, persons on business, utility providers and contractors.
All visitors must comply with ARIS campus rules at all times. For example, no smoking is allowed on campus.
Having passed through the external security check, visitors must report to Reception to sign in on arrival.
All visitors are issued with a badge to be worn at all times.
Visitors will normally be accompanied by a member of staff to their destination and will be returned to Reception by a member of staff in order to ‘sign out’ of school. The badge provided must be returned on departure.
Any person encountered without a badge will be asked to accompany a member of staff to the Reception desk or be escorted from campus.
Any refusal to cooperate will be reported immediately to the Head of Primary.
Visitors will not remove any items of school property (temporarily or permanently) without the express permission of ARIS staff. A record of any items removed must be kept at Reception.
For their own safety, visitors will be given appropriate information on the school’s Health and Safety procedures such as parking, fire safety and first aid.
Designated entrances restricted for staff use, including the science and IT labs, the art room and the library, have swipe card security access control systems installed.
There is a signing in /signing out system at Reception for all parents and visitors / students who are late or are leaving early.
Security personnel will closely monitor the movement of vehicles on the school campus and are responsible for supervising contractors.
Waste disposal vehicles and contractors’ vehicles have restricted access to the campus to avoid times when students and staff are moving around outside.
