School security

I am submitting a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

My questions are:

1) How many primary schools in the local authority have knife arches or metal detector installed? – Please specify which
2)How many secondary schools in the local authority have knife arches or metal detector installed? – Please specify which

If possible, please provide the dates (year) these were installed.

In response to both questions, we can confirm that Devon County Council have no record of knife arches or metal detectors being installed at any schools.

However, Devon County Council can only comment on maintained schools. Academies and private schools will be responsible for their own security and we would recommend that you contact them direct. Details of all schools in Devon can be found on our website at:
