Safe and secure environment at MADE EASY SCHOOL

From Head Of School




Series of incidents of late have set me thinking and left certain questions in my mind which needed to be answered. what exactly is safety and security? Could the tragedy have been prevented? No parent should have to endure the loss of a child. There is nothing worse for a parent than losing a child. Injury, risks are different around the world, but all children, whether rich or poor, living in an industrialized nation or living in rural poverty, have the right to grow up healthy and safe. Kids are going to fall, crash, slip and tumble. It’s all part of being a kid, and we wouldn't want it any other way. But there are little things we can all do to ensure that kids avoid the more serious injuries that can lead to disabilities or be fatal and feel protected against threats that are deliberate and intentional.



What is safety and Security ?
The state of being safe; exemption from hurt or injury; freedom from danger. safety chain, a chain providing additional security safety has both emotional and physical attributes, and that both must be in agreement for safety to be achieved.

Security: The condition of being protected from or not exposed to danger;

Think of security as if it were the umbrella in a storm protecting you from the rain. Your safety lies in the importance of staying warm and dry. Security is the safeguard that ensures our safety remains constant.
The warm embrace of a parent’s hug may make a child feel safe, but that love alone is not enough to protect the child from the world which surrounds them.
They need to devote themselves to not just ensuring the emotional well-being of their child, but also dedicate themselves to protecting their child from harm.
Only when our emotional and physical are assured are we – in effect – SAFE.
Security is therefore the process for ensuring our safety. In order for security to be effective, the components of how our safety is defined need to remain consistent.
Think of security as if it were the house in a storm protecting you from the rain. Your safety lies in the importance of staying warm and dry. Security is the safeguard that ensures our safety remains constant. If the variables risking our safety can be predicted, they can be prevented.
 Awareness + Preparation = Safety 

Basic underlying idea of both safety and security is to protect by creating safe, secure, risk-free conditions. While safety is protection against hazards (accidents that are unintentional), security is a state of feeling protected against threats that are deliberate and intentional.

I would like to list a few measures that the school already has in place, though the first session commences in April 2018
