Community Links

Astor Secondary School works to ensure that your child receives the best possible educational experience and will never be complacent in achieving this end.  With this in mind, and a focus on behaviour and community relationships, we have access to a Youth Engagement Officer (YEO) within the Dover Community Safety Unit.  Working with the YEO has become standard practice in our Academy and other Schools, and we have seen the benefits that this joined up working brings to the students and the community.  Along with the YEO we work closely with Kent Police and attend regular meetings to build links and establish a culture of proactive safeguarding.  Through our community policing links, the safeguarding team have worked on some key issues for our students including grooming, missing, bullying, County lines and anti-social behaviour.
