Safer Schools

The school’s Safer School (SS) Committee met with Shropshire Council’s SS representative, Ian Bartlett, on Tuesday 4th July as part of the annual SS review, along with new Year 5 pupil representatives Megan & Edward. Mr Bartlett was very impressed with the school’s record and granted us re-accreditation.  Megan & Edward are going to carry the Safer Schools’ mantle into the next academic year and now have a dedicated ‘Safer Schools’ area on the Rights Respecting School in the main foyer.
