Perimeter security and safety for independent schools

Based on an interview with Peter Jackson, Managing Director, Jacksons Fencing - Security risks are broadly similar across all schools whether independent or state funded; preventing unauthorised entry to the grounds and protecting pupils, staff and visitors from accidents and injury. Naturally, boarding schools face additional duties of care as staff and pupils will need to be maintained during and after school hours, with different safety and security regimes in operation.
