The use of CCTV at Hugh Sexey C of E Middle School:

We have 6 CCTV cameras in total – all are located on the outside of our buildings and are part of our safeguarding of pupils and cover car parks and main entrances to the school. They are located at the gym entrance, front entrance, rear entrance, bike shed and two are located in the staff car park area. Their positioning ensures that we can monitor entrances – particularly those that are more remote and that property, including pupils’ bikes and staff cars, are protected.

We have spent approximately £4,000 upgrading cameras to ensure that images are of high quality should they be required for identification purposes.

Procedure for trips and activities with restricted places:

  •  The maximum number of places will be stated in the initial letter together with a deadline for receipt of deposits
  •  Deposits will be accepted by the finance office up to 4.30pm on the deadline date
  •  On the following day, if the activity has been oversubscribed, a draw will be carried out by a member of the finance team in the presence of an independent witness
  •  The number of pupils exceeding the maximum places will be drawn at random and placed in order on a waiting list – the results will be recorded
  •  Parents of unsuccessful pupils will be contacted before places are confirmed to other pupils
  •  Should any pupil withdraw from the trip, their place will be offered to pupils on the waiting list after checking with parents that they still wish their child to participate
