Knives and Weapons in School

Closed 8 Mar 2019

Opened 31 Jan 2019


Dear colleagues,

Many schools and colleges have raised concerns with us about a recent significant increase in children and young people carrying knives and weapons both in and out of school.   

Safeguarding in Education are working with our partner agencies, including the police, to firstly understand the extent of the problem and then draw up a plan of action. In order for us to do that effectively we need information from your school or college. It is therefore imperative that you take no more than 15 minutes to complete this survey as accurately as possible to enable us to start off in the right direction.

If you have any questions please contact Jez Prior, Safeguarding in Education manager on or on 03302 227618
