Education Security

Safety is the number one factor a parent considers when deciding on a new school for their child, which is why it is critical that schools invest in robust, high-end security.

    Not only is this vital to fulfilling a school’s responsibility in creating a safe environment, but it also helps to maintain reputation by preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, rather than dealing with the consequences after it has already happened.

    A Plus Security works with private schools, including primary & secondary and colleges/universities to help the education sector overcome all challenges they face in safeguarding their premises.

To protect staff and students

Schools have an equal responsibility to safeguard staff as well as students.

As schools across the UK increasingly report of student-on-staff aggression, CCTV systems provide vital evidence when reporting incidents. This evidence can be used when liaising with other teachers, parents, and the police.

Since 2019, assaults on school employees have soared by 72% within the last four years*. This statistic alone highlights the importance of having CCTV cameras in place to collate and provide valuable evidence, and to help deter assaults happening in the first instance.

To deter bullying

Placing CCTV cameras in hallways, corridors, or spaces of the school where teacher presence may be minimal will help deter anti-social behaviour and bullying, as well as providing students with the sense of being safe. It also helps staff identify individuals in cases where the victim might not have otherwise come forward.

To prevent theft

Protect assets and confidential documents from being stolen or accessed, with highly-visible CCTV. Placing cameras in places less visible to the public eye, such as the rear of buildings, helps prevent theft, vandalism, and anti-social behaviour taking place out of school hours.

To manage who enters and exits buildings

Access control enables full monitoring over who enters and exits the building. Unauthorised visitors accessing school buildings is a common concern for many parents, particularly with children of primary school ages, so investing in an access control system can put parents’ minds at ease and heighten trust in sending their child to that particular school.

To ensure the wellbeing of students

As staff bear the responsibility of the whereabouts of students during school hours, truancy is a common challenge that many schools face; especially those with a high student:staff ratio. Investing in barriers and perimeter controls creates a secure environment, in which staff can more easily supervise students’ whereabouts.

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth.

We needed to roll out the new system throughout Scotland, London and Europe which was very challenging. A Plus and their advice and flexibility made this process much easier for the whole project team. The one to one dialogue and personal service has been excellent. We can speak to a familiar voice at any time, morning and night which has exceeded our expectations. Since the project roll out was completed, we have been able to centrally control the physical security of the Government’s Estates seamlessly. The process Is now simpler which has led to better productivity.
