This terms Safer School meeting took place on Tuesday afternoon. It was attended by Mr Parkhurst, Mr Bartlett from Shropshire Council, the new Head Girl, Head Boy and the Deputies and the Safer School representatives from Year 6.
We had a good response from the parent questionnaires that had been sent out prior to the meeting. Parents commented on how happy they were with the School’s Covid arrangements at drop off and pick up and they felt that the School was as safe for the children as it possibly could be. The children who attended the meeting all agreed that they felt happy and safe in School – these thoughts were mirrored in the questionnaires that the children had completed in School.
The questionnaires did raise the issue of litter on the streets and pathways around the School and we have contacted the Council regarding this – we will continue to pursue this until we are satisfied with the outcome.
Mr Bartlett, The Crime Prevention Officer from Shropshire Council stated,
“Just attended a virtual ‘Safer School’ meeting at Crowmoor Primary School and it was amazing. We have these meetings three times a year and although there has been the challenge of Covid this year, the feedback from parents/carers and the involvement of pupils, was particularly good. Such a positive meeting on security and safety and still, Mr Parkhurst has plans to make further improvements. The only issues (and mainly litter) were outside the school boundary and although beyond the direct control of the school, there are plans to raise the profile and reduce this issue. I was especially impressed by the enthusiasm of staff and pupils and looking forward to the next meeting in 2021.”
There will be another meeting next term.
