CCTV Surveillance within the Academy

The Academy has a large number of surveillance cameras in place across the campus to ensure the safety of all our students, staff and visitors. These cameras also monitor and track student behaviour. Whilst these are not constantly watched, these cameras provide evidence to identify negative behaviour and will be used as part of the disciplinary procedure. Where a student causes damage to school, the Academy will pass any repair costs on to the parent/carer.

CCTV Systems on Public Transport

To address safety issues that arise on school children’s journeys to and from school, Nottingham City Transport and the Nottingham Tram operators will be using full CCTV coverage of these journeys to minimise any behaviour that could affect the safety of school children or other passengers.
CRB checked officers from these companies can show the footage to staff at schools. Where a matter is deemed to be a crime or an assault, the police will be involved. The type of behaviour the companies will bring to the Academy’s attention could be, for example, tampering with safety equipment, running around, annoying other passengers.
