Consultation description

Schools continue to be one the safest places to be. However, no school can afford to ignore the potential threat and impact of security issues. Especially those associated with:

  • violent crime
  • terrorist attack

An open and transparent school security policy will make sure that staff and pupils are able to work and learn in a safe and secure environment.

This guidance will help schools to put in place proportionate and sensible security policies and plans that reflect their individual circumstances.
