School Security Systems:
CCTV, Security Fencing & Access Control - Essex & UK
Security of educational establishments is a multi-faceted subject. As well as parents expecting their children to be safe from intruders, schools want to prevent truancy by controlling access to when and where children leave. Strong school security and CCTV provision can reduce crime, antisocial behaviour, truancy and bullying along with providing a safe, secure environment for children, staff and visitors to work and study.
Today's schools contain valuable and portable property that is attractive to thieves; Arson is a significant problem that can be tackled by preventing unauthorised access.
OFSTED has issued inspection guidelines focusing on the security of children in schools. This accounts for the extent which the schools take steps to ensure that pupils are safe on the school site, for example by monitoring visitors or volunteers or those using the premises during school time.
Each school is different and must develop a strategy tailored to its own circumstances. The measures used should reflect the character of a school and its educational needs as well as the demands of good security.
A security strategy sets out how to implement the school's security policy. ClearView can assist in a security survey of the school to identify and assess risks. From that information recommendations can be made about which measures to consider to minimise and control those risks. This will cover:
- OFSTED’s recommendations
- CCTV compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998
- The latest Home Office Guidelines Publication.
