Typically, an SR1 (A1) type fencing system would be most suitable for a school, keeping the school safe and secure whilst still visually appealing without making the fencing look too imposing. But perimeter security fencing should be specified by the threat to the site and delay required.

Fencing Systems for Safeguarding

A school must be as safe and secure as possible with effective access control measures to ensure the movement of people and vehicles is effectively managed and restricted, ensuring the risks to the school are minimised.

Unfortunately, a school can attract a range of unwanted guests, from vandals and thieves to other potential intruders. If access to the site is not adequately managed, people and valuables are at risk. Gates need to be properly locked and monitored with access control measures or an adequate locking system. Access points require a clear and direct path to the main reception for visitors, with the number of access points kept to a minimum so that visitor movement can be controlled.
