I have attached a joint letter from the school and West Midlands Police over the growing concern we have nationally and locally around knife crime. Next week the police will be working with various partner agencies in Op Sceptre to focus on knife crime. Schools within Dudley are supporting this and working together to ensure our children are safe and continue to understand the impact of this crime.
Yesterday, we remembered one of our own students who 6 years ago was fatally stabbed. The memory of that day and following days is easily the worst that I have experienced and would not want to repeat this again for the school or the families concerned. This is why we are uniting with the police for this focus.
