JFS guards to go high-vis

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY CHAR­LOTTE OLIVER

SE­CU­RITY GUARDS at JFS will be or­dered to wear high-vis­i­bil­ity jack­ets, fol­low­ing a com­plaint from a par­ent over the safety of pupils.

Nicki Hari raised con­cerns af­ter her 14-year-old son was mugged on a path lead­ing to the school.

At a meet­ing with head­teacher Jonathan Miller, she said she was told that the school would not be in­creas­ing se­cu­rity, but guards would be in­structed to wear high-vis­i­bil­ity jack­ets.

“He said their se­cu­rity is as good as it can be, and that teach­ers had also been told to be more vig­i­lant,” Ms Hari said.

“I told him I didn’t re­ceive any con­tact from the school fol­low­ing the mug­ging, for which he apol­o­gised.”

JFS did not re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.
