Community Alerts

We regularly receive incident reports from Sandwell Children’s Services regarding incidents in the local area. These alerts are sent to all Sandwell schools and academies. These reports will be posted here for a period of one month from the time we are notified.

We take these reports seriously and urge our community to be vigilant at all times. We will continue to have an increased staff presence before and after school and our staff will continue to do community walks.
