Fire Exits: Pupils should not use these doors to exit the building, these doors are clearly marked as emergency only. Pupils should use the appropriate doors at the reception and pupil entrance to enter and leave the building. Pupils should also use the paths and stairs to exit the building at the end of the school day and not on the driveway or up the grass bank on to the driveway, this is for their own safety due to cars and taxis entering or leaving schools grounds.
