Schools safety and security always need to be optimized making them safe havens.  They need to be places where parents can send their children without worry and where children can learn without fear with guaranteed security and safety of everyone within the school environment. For these reasons schools are responsible for the implementation of security measures and conducting more formal risk assessments in order to identify their key security concerns.

Who is responsible for school safety?

Shared responsibility for school safety

But just what does school safety entail? School safety is defined as schools and school-related activities where students are safe from violence, bullying, harassment, and substance use. Safe schools promotes the protection of students from violence, exposure to weapons and threats, theft, bullying, and the sale or use of illegal substances on school grounds.
“External” incidents, including unsupervised visitors, gang activity, Trespassing-intrusion to school premises, vandalism, arson and burglary, are ranked higher in all incidents.
What effective solutions can be deployed to solve school security challenges? Let us have a look at a few.
  1.  Installation of CCTV and Access control systems.
  2. Understand the importance of having “layers” of security, one is fencing the entire institution.
  3. Reviewing school security strategies at least annually with involvement of experts.
  4. Personal safety training such as violence and aggression management, defusing violent situations, self defence and training in risk management.
  5.  A proactive approach to emergency management and loss prevention.
