Sandwell Situation

I wanted to write to reassure parents that the situation in Sandwell this morning, regarding the bomb scares, did not affect Ormiston Forge Academy.

We received an alert this morning at 0930 that a bomb threat had been made at schools in Sandwell. Ormiston Forge Academy did not receive a direct threat.

At this point we readied our emergency evacuation plan which means students and staff would evacuate the site in an orderly, supervised and prepared manner.

The safety of our students and staff is paramount and all decisions we make ensures this. Thankfully the alerts received by other schools were hoaxes but it is important that our community remains vigilant and that we work closely with the police.

Anyone with information which may aid officers should call police on 101.
