Here We Go Again

Concern for the safety and security in schools continues to grow.

Homicide amongst 13- to 19-year-olds is the highest it’s been on record.

That’s 16 more homicides compared to 2021.

Ensuring the safety of students and staff in educational institutions is a fundamental priority.

The presence of knives and other weapons in schools poses a significant threat, necessitating the implementation of robust strategies to prevent such occurrences.

7 reasons why its important to introduce preventive strategies:

1. Student and teacher safety

2. Psychological impact

3. Legal and ethical responsibility

4. Robust Policies

5. Educational training programmes

6. Increased surveillance and security

7. Anonymous reporting systems - Nick Inge

Is it time for all schools to have search archways and handheld search scanners to prevent weapons from entering school premises?

Understanding the gravity of the situation, through statistics and robust preventive measures and training, schools can better protect their students and staff.
