Bordesley Green Girls' School and Sixth Form is committed to keeping our students safe, both in school and the wider community. As part of our safeguarding arrangements, BGGS has a two-way information sharing agreement in place with West Midlands Police, and we are also active members of our local constituency Police & Schools Panel

 

The agreement is compliant with Crime & Disorder Act 1998Data Protection Act 2018 – 2021 Update and United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation, (UK-GDPR), and focuses on preventing young people from becoming involved, or further involved, in crime and anti-social behaviour, (as either a victim or offender), or those who have been reported as missing who may be vulnerable as a result. 

 

This joint approach helps us to intervene early, provide additional support, and share up-to-date safety messages with students and their families/ carers.  If you have any queries about this partnership,  please contact our Deputy Head -  Ms N Saleh by emailing nsaleh@bordgrng.bham.sch.uk.

We are passionate about instilling young people with insightful and perceptive knowledge of the workings of the English language, of cultivating a love of literature and developing high levels of literacy. What students learn in the classroom will equip them with the resilience to navigate the world outside. The thoughts, philosophies, concepts and controversies they come across will plant the seed for learning and exploring the world that they live in.
