HEALTH & SAFETY

MAKING YOUR SCHOOL A SAFER SCHOOL

No one can predict when an emergency will occur. To ensure the safety of learners, educators, staff and administrators, all schools should be prepared to respond to, and recover from an emergency. Most South African schools are relatively ill-prepared to deal with emergency situations.

More so now than ever before, schools are faced with the challenge of being prepared to deal with a plethora of crises, from medical emergencies to threats of violence, from severe weather to service delivery strikes, and from sexual abuse to kidnapping.

It is therefore important for schools not to work in isolation, but to establish relationships with law enforcement and fire department officials, medical practitioners and local municipalities, and to coordinate plans with these potential partners before a crisis occurs.

As part of the Safer Schools we have developed the Safer Schools initiative, intended to be universal to all schools. It is presented as a practical model to assist individual schools to evaluate emergency plans already in place and to develop new strategies and responses to facilitate a Safer School environment.
