Being Safe

The school acknowledges its responsibility for the safety of its students. The school is proactive in ensuring that no person brings knives or other weapons into the school. To be able to reassure parents and students that people are safe whilst at school there is a policy of regular checks for knives etc administered by the school’s police officer using a hand held metal detector. Complying with such checks is a requirement of being a student at Duke’s Aldridge Academy.
