Incidents outside of School premises

Birmingham Local Authority have recently issued some guidance to schools about how to manage incidents that happen after school has finished and away from school premises. This is to ensure that students are kept safe and members of school staff do not place themselves in positions of unreasonable risk.

In the light of this guidance please take note of the points below:

  • If Hodge Hill College staff become aware through student feedback that an incident of crime or anti-social behaviour is being planned to take place at the end of the school day they will take steps to prevent this by keeping students in, calling parents, other schools and the police community team
  • Pupils will be supervised as they arrive and leave school for up to 15 minutes before and after the school day.
  • School staff should not supervise beyond the immediate perimeter of the school.
  • If the staff on duty see an incident happening further away from school they will not go to it to intervene but will call the police using 999 and explain that a crime is taking place or potential crime about to take place provide details of precise location, thorough descriptions of those involved, number plates and any specific risks e.g. weapons
  • Once staff have returned to school after they have finished their duty they will not go back outside to an incident but will call the police using 999 as above
  • Parents who see an incident outside of school before or after the school day should call the police first not the school using 999 as above
  • Police will attend incidents where members of the public are concerned that there are young people in danger of harm.
