As part of Project Enlightenment rolled out by Essex Police on 1st May 2019, it was proposed that the police should increase it’s links with schools in Tendring. This is something that we were keen to be involved with. We therefore, arranged to trial regular visits from colleagues in the Community Policing Team during the last half term. The aim, to keep our students safe by providing a way in which they access the police safely, to express their needs, build trust and encourage greater involvement in safeguarding and mitigation of risk. As anticipated, our students responded well and it was deemed to be a such success that we are continuing the partnership this year. Every 3 weeks PC Potter and PCSO Robinson will hold a Police Surgery for students (appointment only) and student Meet and Greet around school at lunchtime .
Next visits: Thursday 19th September, Tuesday 12th November and Monday 9th December.
