Personal and Community Safety
At Dawley Brook Primary School, we try or best to ensure that our families have the most up-to-date information about how to keep our local community a safe place to live and learn in. Dudley’s community safety partnership, Dudley Safe & Sound, has a host of help and advice on its website about personal and community safety.

Think First- Think Safe
A new Dudley Safe & Sound campaign which has been launched urges everyone in the borough to ‘think first’ about their personal safety. A short video has been developed to show how easy it is to think first and make safer choices even on every-day journeys.
