Schools in Bexley are aiming to tackle anti-social behaviour by making the public aware of their uniform colours.

Bexley Council has joined forces with five local schools and the Sidcup Partners to create posters that help the public identify students from these schools based on their uniforms.

The initiative is part of efforts by Bexley’s Community Safety team to work with the young people of Cleeve Park School, Hurstmere School, Blackfen School for Girls, CTK St Mary’s – A Christ the King Sixth Form and Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School.

The students came up with the idea for posters with QR codes.

These posters allow members of the public to report both positive and negative behaviour directly to the schools.

Students from the five schools have also taken part in workshops including an emergency first aid training from Street Doctors.

This workshop taught the students how to help someone who is unconscious, severely injured or experiencing heavy blood loss.

Sidcup Partners (Sidcup’s Business Improvement District) has helped to promote the posters online and arranged for their display in shop windows and near till counters.

Councillor Sue Gower MBE, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing at Bexley Council, said: "This pilot project has been co-produced with local students and represents a collective commitment to the safety and well-being of our communities.

"The posters empower the public to report anti-social behavior among school students, paving the way towards safer communities and brighter future for our schools.

"The brilliant students involved are really taking ownership of their high streets, local area, and behaviour.

"I am confident that this pilot will be a success in Sidcup and hope that it can be rolled out across the whole borough."
