CST working closely with Stamford Hill schools on security to protect the Kehilla

19 March 2018

Last week CST is delighted to have hosted the first CST Stamford Hill Schools meeting. CST invited schools in the area who receive funds through the Government Grant. This meeting was part of CST’s strengthening engagement with the kehilla, especially regarding security for schools.  

Over 40 Stamford Hill schools attended the meeting, which was organised by CST’s representative within the kehilla. Various CST staff presented on their areas of expertise, namely our Security Enhancement Project that gives money for security upgrades from fencing to CCTV (over £11 million donated across the UK since 2006, £1.4 million of which has gone to the kehilla); security and emergency procedures advice; and information regarding CST’s continuing overseeing of the £13.4 million Home Office grant for security guards at Jewish schools and other locations. 

The meeting was a major step in increasing CST’s engagement and work with the schools in Stamford Hill. CST, led by CST’s Kehilla representative, will be working with schools in Stamford Hill on a programme of development for their security and emergency procedures.
