At St Mary's we have been developing links with West Midlands Police for many years. We have particularly strong links with Bridge Street Station Newtown.
The police have been invaluable in their contribution to school and have forged good relations with the children and staff.
A part of our aim to present a positive image of the police we hold an annual police and pupil day in school. Each year we work with officers from a range of departments to inform and engage with the children focusing on stranger danger, anti guns and gangs, anti drugs and firearms. We have also been lucky enough to have rapper Witnes' attend these days to perform for the children.
Many of our pupils now aspire to be police officers or do jobs of a similar nature and see the police as friends of the St Mary's family.
