Unpleasant, anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated

We are working closely with our community

It has been brought to our attention that there has been some unpleasant, anti-social behaviour involving some of our students in the Boothstown area. Some schools would say that this is a neighbourhood issue and that the parents of the pupils involved are the ones who should sort this out.

Luckily, we take our responsibilities to your children and our community far too seriously to consider this as an option. We feel that the behaviour of our pupils on and off the premises, in school time and outside of school time, is our responsibility. As some people say, “It takes a village to raise a child.” We are part of that village.

Mr Hilton, our Behaviour Provision Manager, has already been in touch with the local police officers and is working very closely with them on identifying who these pupils are and in considering how we both punish and educate the young people who are causing such unhappiness amongst their community.

I attended the Worsley and Boothstown Community Committee meeting on Wednesday evening and made it clear to Councillors and community members that we do not condone this sort of behaviour and that we will continue to work very closely with the police and other agencies to improve behaviour in this part of our city.

If you think your child may be spending time in around Boothstown behaving in an anti-social manner it might be worth speaking to them about this so that they avoid being spoken to by the police.

Finally, I made it clear at the Community Committee that I know that the vast majority of our young people are caring and considerate and go about their business without disturbing other people. Let’s see if we can make that majority even larger.
