Help and Support in our Local Community
At Hoole, we work proactively with local partners and organisations to support our school family.
Safe School Chester, is a community project that works along the lines of Neighbourhood Watch. The project is in collaboration with Safeguarding in Education, David Keane, Police Crime Commissioner, local schools, their pupils and parents, local councillors and the police.
There are over 40 local shops and businesses who have agreed to display stickers in their windows to show that it is a safe haven for them should they feel at all at risk. Your child can then go into the business if they feel at risk at all and ask that their school, parents or, in more serious cases, the police are called. So far, the project is in Hoole, Newton, Upton, Bache, Vicars Cross, parts of Handbridge and Great
Boughton. Your child will have received a talk on how Safe School works and how it contributes to keeping them safe.
We would ask that if your child goes out independently you familiarise them with the Safe Zones.
