Safer School – Gathering Parents/Carers views

Safer Schools

In 2009, our school was accredited a Safer School. This is a school security initiative created by West Mercia Police and supported by Shropshire Council. It includes the following.

  • Forming a Safer School group representing the school.
  • Implementing basic security measures applicable at all schools i.e. property marking, and visitor passes.
  • A proportional pro-active approach to the security/safety/safeguarding of staff, pupils, visitors, premises, property and assets.
  • Establishing a procedure for surveying perceived issues i.e. an unauthorised thoroughfare or, recording incidents i.e. trespass, anti-social behaviour, vandalism. Any recorded information is then analysed, and appropriate measures implemented.
  • If there are any projects to be undertaken, they are prioritised. Following the implementation of a project, its success is monitored.
  • PSHE or education of pupils as per the Safer School pack.

To maintain the accreditation, we have held regular Safer School meetings since our accreditation, and we plan to hold a future meeting.  Part of the Safer School process is gathering the views/concerns of parents/carers. If you have views/concerns, including any positive observations, please could you forward in writing by Monday, 13th November 2023 so they may be considered at a Safer School meeting. The focus is the school grounds/site.

Thank you.
