4 reasons to invest in secure school fencing

folder_openSchools & Education

The right school fencing is important. It seems obvious, but there may actually be more reasons than you might expect for investing in secure school fencing.

Here are four reasons why school fencing should be a top priority for your educational establishment:

Stop runaways in their tracks.

Not all students are enthusiastic learners. Keeping them on-site is essential for their safety. You have a responsibility to keep your students safe, whether they’re youngsters who are likely to wander off and explore or older pupils who might escape deliberately. Keeping the school gates closed, with well-maintained fencing all around, reduces the risk of any young person making their great escape.

Keep unregistered visitors away.

You know the importance of school security. You have strict rules and processes for visitors. But, these fall apart if there are other ways onto school premises.

High-quality school fencing ensures that nobody finds other ways into school grounds. Nobody can bypass your school security if there’s only one way into the school, past a secure reception. School fencing should be high enough and secure enough that unwanted trespassers cannot gain access.

Good first impressions for parents and visitors

When parents visit your school, they want to feel that it’s a safe environment where their little ones can learn. Visitors want to see that your school cares about the safety and that it looks well-kept. Unfortunately, rusty old fences won’t make the right impression.

When Ofsted come to call, it’s important that you can proudly show how you’re focused on safeguarding. Visitors of every type should see a school that looks smart and keeps students safe.

Keep school safe out of hours.

Safety and security are important even when your school’s closed. After hours, troublemakers find their fun walking through schools after dark. Anyone with access to your school can cause damage or be involved in the theft. School budgets are stretched, and you can’t afford to be victims of theft, vandalism or arson. Those actions don’t just hit the budget but also affect every student.

High-security school fencing, maintained to a high standard, improves security when nobody’s on site. Your school is important, and the right fencing is essential.
