AlertSystems has a long association in providing security systems to a wide range of educational establishments including schools and Higher Education sectors.
One of the biggest challenges facing the educational sector is how to provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors. Controlling access across a school or university ensures that unauthorised visitors do no present an unacceptable risk to your students and staff. Our experienced team work closely with Bursars, Estate Managers, IT Managers and Security Managers to provide expert support and advice to develop modern and effective security systems.
How Educational organisations can benefit:
Parents need to be assured that their children are going to a safe environment. We work closely with schools to ensure our systems comply with OFSTEAD duty of care requirements and provide a secure environment for their children.
A key safeguarding requirement is for schools to be able to control the access of the premises at all times. This needs to be balanced with the practical requirement of managing and controlling the flow of pupils around the school buildings while allowing easy and unhindered access for staff and authorised visitors.
There is a need to consider all user people, including staff, students and those with special access needs. Systems need to be robust and easy to use and administer.
AlertSystems successfully implemented a wide range of solutions to a number of Universities and Colleges. With increased competition for students, universities are increasingly aware of the importance of the quality of the overall student experience. It is important students feel safe but can still move around freely.
The ‘open’ nature of a university campus, with their diverse range of facilities, can present a number of security and access issues. In many cases, there is also the need to accommodate public access and rights of way.
A number of universities are already experiencing the benefits of our HD CCTV and Access Control systems.
