The school hires school security to protect the campus and they should be enough protection. School should be a holy place for children but require teachers be armed can only make the place worse. Schools should not be the
After that day school officials have been working with the county sheriffs’ office, conveniently located on campus, to help prevent anything like this from happening again. The school has since decided to perform random drug screenings and property screening monthly as a precaution to keep this sort of event from happening again. These searches could be a great benefit to our school, there would be lass students using drugs, GPA’s would increase, and our school would be a
The policy that is in place to keep the students and teachers safe at schools needs to be fixed, so that people are not being wrong fully expelled, and wrong fully accused of something. Kids make mistakes, and it is ok to be punished for a crime, but to what extent is okay? This policy is a good thing, it is good to try to keep everyone safe. We need to change the extent of punishment these students face when committing a very minor
There’s no legal limit for pupils aged 8 or over. Light and noise in a classroom and throughout the school should be monitored frequently a very noisy environment can cause instructions not being heard increasing risks also if possible have a period in the day where lights are turned off and natural light is used this may reduce the number of headaches children may experience. Ventilation is also important, carbon dioxide can build up in classrooms with windows and doors are kept closed. This can be easily resolved by opening windows so there is a supply of fresh air When planning activities specific risks to individuals should also taken into account. For instance a pupil who is pregnant should have a risk assessment carried out to ensure they do not
If an accident occurs in the classroom at the school, the red/yellow card system is used to summon immediate help. The first aider should tend to the child and keep the situation calm and under control and administer the required first aid. Another staff member will inform office staff what has happened and once the office staff have permission from the Head Teacher or acting head, it is their duty to call the emergency services. Other children who may have witnessed the incident must be kept calm and safe. As much accurate information as possible should be recorded so that office staff can relay this to the emergency services.
You can ensure this is followed by taking all the necessary steps to safeguard and promote the welfare of the child, which are ensuring the building is safe and secure, this can be by having the school gates closed and locked so nobody can get in and out without permission and also having people sign in and out, having sensors doors around the school that can only be accessed with fobs. Ensuring there are no risks by doing regular risk assessments and removing any hazards. Promote good health by preventing spread of infection, this could be by advising the child stays off school (viral) or covering the infected area, you can also promote good health by proving healthy snacks and promoting hand washing. Childs behavior must be managed either by rewarding good behavior or following procedures for bad behavior; this could be removing them from the situation and explaining what they have done wrong, maybe giving them time to think about what they have done. 2.1, 2.2 There are a number of potential conflicts or dilemmas that may arise between the duty of care and an individual’s rights such as the child’s information being shared.
Competency Goal I To provide and maintain a well functioning and inviting incident free educational environment. Functional Area I: Safety I fine it is very important to be safety conscious at all times of the day and demonstrate safety procedure with my students and provide information to parents to help reinforce safety at home. When entering the learning facility, I immediately began to scan the environment to make certain that the all areas in my classroom are free of any inappropriate items or substances. I constantly discuss with the students the indoors and outdoors safely rules; like walking, and using your hands for crafty creating or helping your friends or catching a ball, waving hello or good bye, and be thoughtful by putting away toys when you are finishing playing. I get great pleasure at hearing the children remind each other of the safely rules.
I think providing our schools with better security is an issue that should not be put on the back burner to be discussed only when a shooting occurs in our school. We want our schools to be safe and have adequate, security but we do not want our schools to become a prison. We want students and teachers to feel safe and secure when they enter their classroom. We must try and figure out a way to achieve this goal without providing our teachers with firearms. Since I’m currently working in the field of Early Childcare and Education, and I have several grandchildren that are in school I hope this is a goal that we can
Up until today we are still being taught in elementary school to take cover by going under your desk and covering the back of your neck just like “Duck and Cover” in the case that we were to ever hear the fire alarm go off, which could either be caused by a normal fire or any sort of attack. The threat of a nuclear war is also similar to the threat of terrorism in the way that something disastrous could unknowingly occur at any moment and for that matter we need to always be ready. For example, have resources such as canned foods and a safe place in case of an attack. In both cases it is also very important to simply be aware of your
There is a variety of things that can help stop a shooting in a school just by inputting some general guidelines and ideas. This paper will talk about the changes that I would make if I was in charge of stopping school shootings by juvenile’s as well as the using both trait and Choice theory followed by the public implications of my deterrence I would employ. “310 documented shootings have taken place on school property within the United States” (Duplechain) School shootings is a topic that should not be taken lightly. It is
