Students at Ilfracombe Arts College will soon be greeted by School Pastors as they leave the gates at the end of a school day.

The group will be a similar set-up to the Street Pastor movement.
 
The School Pastors will be starting their training shortly and hope to be up and running by next January.
 
Yvonne Norris, joint co-ordinator and Senior Ilfracombe Street Pastor, said “The scheme has been started because of the success of Street Pastors in Ilfracombe, we now feel it would be of benefit to support our school and community. We are hopeful the scheme will provide support to pupils as they walk home from school, helping with safety and bring a calming effect to any problems that may occur”.
