NPT update on reopening of schools

Dear all

I wanted to make contact with you prior to schools reopening; as we commence the staggered return of year groups from Monday 8th March 2021.

Local Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) across Birmingham have specific Patrol Plans in place, to offer reassurance to staff and students and encourage their safe return to school. Therefore, you may see an increase in uniformed officers within close proximity of your school, within key green space areas, as well as on key public transport routes (Buses/Trains) during this time. Please do not be alarmed if you do see an increased police presence, as this will most probably be the reason why.

Please also remind students of the continuing COVID-19 Restrictions around the wearing of face coverings on public transport and the banning of gatherings/being in the company of others at this time – in line with the Government’s Road Map out of Lockdown plan.


Many thanks,
