The involvement of St John the Baptist CE Primary School and Nursery in the ‘Safer Schools’ initiative is excellent. The school recently held a ‘Safer School Group’ meeting with Miss Morris, pupils, the Police and myself representing Shropshire Council. A thorough meeting, covering all aspects of the security/safety process. This included a pro-active approach to security/safety, consultation with parents/carers/pupils, reflecting on any school issues and planning for the future. It was a really positive meeting with a good contribution by the pupils. Feedback to the parent/carer survey was exceptionally good and included some good observations. Overall, an excellent example of ‘Safer School’ involvement – well done to Mrs Ball, Miss Morris, governors, staff and pupils. The school was presented with an updated ‘Safer School’ certificate and a future meeting will be scheduled for Spring 2020.
