It would appear that ERYC have no confidence in the five-foot security fences around many East Riding schools
Mathew Buckley, ERYC Head of Legal
Despite the fences, Mathew Buckley, ERYC Head of Legal, is convinced it is reasonable to believe that alcohol will be consumed on the school grounds by those 18 and over. In addition, he believes this will have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of those in the locality.
As can be seen, this is the criteria that must be fulfilled to introduce Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO). The PSPO, which includes the attempt to prevent alcohol consumption, is currently in place for nearly all East Riding schools.
As the only other option is that this has already happened I have made an FOI request to ERYC with regards Stamford Bridge Primary School Junior site. This will give me the required information to take part in the current consultation process for ERYC PSPO.
Whether this has happened or our Mathew believes it may happen there is obviously an urgent need to review security at all East Riding schools.
I have sent my concerns to all ERYC Councillors requesting an urgent review into the security at East Riding schools.
