Safer Schools officer

Safer Schools Partnerships (SSP) help to keep students safe, reduce the risk of young people getting drawn into crime, anti-social or extremist behaviour, and improve the safety of the school site and surrounding area.

Our Safer Schools officer is PC Lucy Campbell, a police officer in the Norfolk Constabulary.  She supports as a member of partnership staff at CAN:

  • The safety of pupils and staff, as well as the school site and surrounding area
  • Young people in dealing with situations that may put them at risk of becoming victims of crime, bullying or intimidation, and providing support to those experiencing these things
  • Early identification, support, and, where necessary, challenging pupils involved in, or at risk of, offending
  • Improved standards of pupil behaviour and attendance, lessening the need for exclusions
  • Improving relations between young people and the police, and between young people and the wider community
  • Effectively approaching issues beyond the school site that negatively impact on pupil safety and behaviour
