In order to keep the children safe in school, we have recently introduced a system where parents/ carers can no longer wander into the school building. Parents who have business in school are asked to sign in, and others are asked to leave their children at the door. This has caused great upset and frustration for parents. I have explained that it is for the safety of the pupils, but the decision has been met with comments such as " This used to be such a welcoming school, and now we are being locked out". i am interested to see what other schools do in this regard, and also need signposting to statuatory advice or guidelines that I can use to support this new system.
