Whitchurch CE Infant & Nursery Academy

Safer Schools

The Safer School initiative is a holistic, practical and realistic approach to school security and personal safety. New Accreditation - Overall Excellent

Congratulations to Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery Academy on maintaining the ‘Safer School’ accreditation. The school was accredited a ‘Safer School’ in 2014 and recently, Mrs Cope and Mrs Rowlandson with the lead of Miss Ross, held a Safer School meeting to update the school’s involvement in the initiative. At the meeting, we reviewed security/safety measures, updated an action plan and refreshed the incident reporting process. The school has progressively improved security and safety over the years and this is reflected by the lack of recorded incidents – excellent news! I was particularly impressed by the hard work of Miss Ross in preparation for the Safer School meeting and a future annual meeting is scheduled for Autumn 2020. A new updated ‘Safer School’ certificate was presented to the school.
