Safer Schools Officer

Orion Academy is fortunate to have strong links with Thames Valley Police, through the Safer Schools Officer.

PC Lee-Anne Bury will attend the school to discuss any issues that may be affecting the students, either in the academy or at home. Her role is to support students, parents and staff in a variety of ways. Many students request to talk to PC Bury about issues and often she is able to form a link between the police, students, their parents and other external agencies.

PC Bury also offers to the academy a number of other supportive measures, such as:

  • Restorative Approaches meetings
  • Anti-bullying talks
  • Hate Crime information
  • Guns and knife crime talks
  • Drugs awareness talks

This is an important role and one which staff, students and parents value highly.
Please contact the school if you would like further information about PC Bury’s role.
