5 Guidelines Can Help in Ensuring the Safety of Our School-Going Children

Children spend more time in schools than anywhere else for most of the year – making it extremely important for school authorities, teachers, and parents to ensure that every child is safe inside the school premises.

Here are a few suggestions that come to mind when thinking of students’ safety:

  1. School Infrastructure Audit:

The school infrastructure is another major concern. Many students have died or been injured due to poor infrastructure at the schools. We should not wait to initiate construction or maintenance of roofs until they collapse and create troubles. Similarly, provision for safe drinking water the students’ right, not a supplement. School authorities should always be keen about auditing the school infrastructure and amenities to create a better and safe learning environment.

  1. School Environment Audit:

Safety around school premises is very important. Many casualties have been reported when tree branches fall off. School authorities should initiate necessary action for keeping the environment and students safe.

  1. First aid:

It is no longer a question to whether or not to provide first aid to students. Injuries can happen at any moment and delay in proper medical aid can lead to serious fatalities and casualties.

  1. School Safety Committee:

A school safety committee should be constituted to ensure and monitor safety practices within the school.The safety committee should include the Principal/Head Master, PTA authority, staff and student representatives and ward members.

  1. Emergency Numbers:

Display of emergency numbers in school will be highly beneficial for students and staff members. These should include the contact numbers of the local police station, school principal, PTA authority, ambulance service, etc.
