Safer Schools

Stokesay Primary School is proud to be a 'Safer School'

Safer Schools:


West Mercia Police and Shropshire Council support our school with this initiative.

The initiative is a practical and realistic approach to school security and safety.

It gives our school a clear focus and sets a minimum standard for school security.


Please click here for a copy of our Safer Schools Policy Statement, agreed by governors.



For results and analysis of a Safer Schools Questionnaire,  please click here (and please look on the tab above, named 'Safer School Questionnaire Results' for more detail on responses/changes made following your input).  more recent questionnaires are available in school.



The essential elements of the ‘Safer School’ process include:-


*        Implementing a security policy that the governors have adopted.

*        Consulting parents/carers and pupils for their views and updating them on any progress.

*        Publicity of ‘Safer Schools’ to school staff, pupils, school neighbours, parents and prospective parents.

*        Establishing a ‘Safer Schools’ group. This ‘Safer School’ group is a partnership of school stakeholders.

*        Regularly reviewing and implementing good practice and essential security/safety measures for staff, pupils and the site.

*        Educating pupils through the Personal, Social, Health and Economic curriculum programme or the Safer School folder.

*        A daily procedure for recording incidents should they occur i.e. trespass, burglary, theft, anti-social behaviour,           vandalism, arson, suspicious activity etc. 

*         Solving real problems rather than perceived problems. Prioritising work (if any) and reviewing action.

*         If there are security issues i.e. vandalism, anti-social behaviour etc, the intention of the initiative is to reduce/eliminate the issues.




We have regular meetings of the 'Safer Schools' group. 


This group is currently made up of:


*  Headteacher

*  Julia Morgan (Stokesay Governor and administrator )

*  Ian Bartlett (Safer Schools)

*  Local PC or PCSO representative 

*  Pupil input comes through School Council input (when/where appropriate)


We are always keen for new members to join our group, so we have a wider range of views, and would welcome parental input, so please get in touch if you wish.
