Roscoe Primary School Case Study

We had provided security services to Roscoe Primary School for many years such as remote alarm monitoring, intruder alarms and maintenance on their security systems, so when they contacted us regarding upgrading their security systems we already had a good understanding of their security needs.

After a free of charge security survey we put together a proposal of how they could improve their current security profile and in turn help their Ofsted rating with regards the safe guarding of children and staff at the school. The first issue that came out of the security survey was the flow and control of people in/out and around the building. This is a key point when Ofsted look at the safeguarding aspect. To improve this we proposed and installed a Paxton Access Control system on the site, this is an extremely cost effective and the most efficient way to control who and when parents, staff, pupils and general public can enter any given part of the building. A good access control system can go a long way in safeguarding a school and scores well with an Ofsted inspection. Paired with the Paxton Access Control system we installed and integrated car park barriers in order to stop any unwanted vehicles into the schools front or rear car parks and entrances.

Now the school had control of people flow with the Paxton Access Control System it was important to them to have an up to date CCTV system as their old analogue system wasn’t performing to the standards they now required. We again proposed and installed a High-Definition HDIP CCTV system from Hikvision in the school using their NVR (Network Video Recorder) and 4 megapixel vandal resistant dome cameras in various locations around the school internally and externally. This now gave them the capability to pull back footage for up to 31 days to review for incidents with pupils, staff, parents or the general public and because of the 31 day recording capacity it meant they were always covered if any incidents happened during the holidays.
