Safer Schools

West Mercia Police and Shropshire Council work jointly with schools to secure a holistic, practical and realistic approach to school security and personal safety.

 The initiative has two separate roles:
• The primary role is to address the security and safety issues of the school environment i.e. school staff, pupils, property and the premises.
• The second and significant role is to deter/reduce future crime, not only on the school site but in local communities and into the future. 

Essential Elements of the Process:
• Creating an active security policy for the school.
• Taking ownership of the site through shared involvement. This Group is a partnership of school stakeholders.
• Implement good practice and essential work applicable at all schools i.e. signs, property marking, visitor passes etc. Regularly reviewing security/safety measures for staff, pupils, the site and assets.
• Establish a daily procedure for recording incidents i.e. trespass, burglary, theft, anti-social behaviour, vandalism, arson, suspicious activity etc., both during school hours and out-of hours.
• Solving real problems rather than perceived problems. Prioritising work and reviewing action.
• Education of pupils as per the “Safer School” pack.
• An audit trail of the school’s Safer School commitment.
• Publicity of Safer School to school staff, pupils, school neighbours, parents and prospective parents.


This initiative has the backing and support of the West Mercia Police and Shropshire Council’s Risk Management Group. The Council’s Crime Prevention Officer is committed to the initiative and available to assist schools through the initiative. We thank our parents, children and the wider community for continuing to work with us to create a safer Broseley.

On completion of the process, schools are recognised for their commitment to security/safety by receiving the Safer School accreditation. This accreditation is reviewed every two years and ours is valid until June 2026.
