Security at School and Around the School

Security at School and Around the School

Safety in the institution and on the street, near the school, is not the sole responsibility of the school or the prefecture. There are unknown rules that your child and school administrators must know and adapt so that he/she is an “actor” of his own safety.

In the School: The Playground and Corridors

The playground is the school’s most important area of freedom, and this is the more reason architecture is quite important when setting up a school complex, to make all corners accessible without difficulties. Conflicts can arise, even violence. Admittedly, part of it is the learning of group life, but a school is also a place of rights and duties. In case of difficulty, the adults in charge of the surveillance are the privileged interlocutors; your child must have the reflex to find them. It is not a matter of doing justice to oneself (it could be scolded or punished); it is not a question of keeping in oneself a too invasive fear. Sometimes the problem will be resolved by the teacher when heading back to the classroom; the same rules apply in the corridors, courtyard or refectory of the institution.

Around the School

Your child must know some simple rules of road safety, the organization of the traffic at the exit and around his school, the identification of the lights to stop and the pedestrian crossings that he can take, the meaning of the main one’s road signs. He has to practice looking left then right before crossing. Also, explain to your child that he shouldn’t be alone in the forepart of the institution. At the end of classes, if for some reason, the person who comes to take him has a slight delay, he must, in this case, enter the school again to wait at the shelter. Show him where the keeper’s doorbell is and tell him he will not be scolded

Security is Everyone’s Business!

In some schools, tutoring is introduced between a “little” and a “big,” the older student is responsible for solving minor problems. This is a good example of citizenship at school! On your side, you can mold your child toward thinking about the right attitude to adopt in case of conflict.

Train your child to the simple rules of road safety, if you have the possibility, make several times the path that separates your home from school with him, by clearly explaining signals and markers (lights, crosswalks.

Remember, when you leave your child in school, there is a transfer of responsibility. If you need, for example, to get it back before the climax of classes, be sure to tell the teacher, the principal, and your child, these are also simple rules of safety!
