Valley School Pukekohe - Effort Brings Reward




 Following the tragic events in Christchurch it is timely to remind parents of our lock down procedure.

We practise a lock down as part of our emergency plan.

We work closely with police on any lock down and follow their instructions. It is often not possible for parents to access the school during a lock down.

Injuries at School

It is unavoidable with 500 pupils at school that injuries and accidents happen. We always maintain a team of staff members with current first aid certificates ready to help as needed. 

Our school procedure when dealing with a head knock or head injury is that we will always phone parents to let them know. Even if it seems like a minor head knock and everything seems okay we will let you know so you can be aware if anything crops up later in the day.
