3 Reasons that make it crucial to have quality fencing around schools

It’s a fact that schools have had to erect palisade fencing or rigid mesh fencing around school grounds to protect children from an ever increasingly dangerous world in recent years.

As the most vulnerable targets for kidnapping or even being caught up in gangs and drugs, it’s essential to make sure that the perimeter security around a school is tamper-proof, and of such quality that it puts anyone off even attempting to enter the grounds.

The right style of fencing, such as that manufactured by Topfence in Cape Town, doesn’t make the school look or feel like a prison, in fact, this unique fencing system is designed to add aesthetic appeal to any property it has to protect.

Here are 3 reasons that make it crucial to have tamper-proof fencing protecting schools

Safety for students & teachers

It’s unfortunate that there have been instances of violence towards children and teachers at schools in the last 20 years, and, in certain gang infested areas, it’s not safe for any pupil or teacher to be left without an effective perimeter crime barrier.

Preventing truancy

There are children that may come from difficult home situations that affect them emotionally, yet, because they’re unable to vocalise the stress they’re under, which can also come from bullies at school, they don’t want to be in school at all.

Once a child has left the school premises there is nothing anyone can do to protect them from the dangers that exist in playing truant.  Schools are expected to protect students during school hours, and, if they haven’t put sufficient security measures in place, they can be held responsible should anything happen to the child.

Prevention of child abductions

It’s not always a criminal that will be behind the abduction of a child from school. Parents engaged in bitter custody battles have also been known to abduct their own children, behaving in contravention of any custody rights that may be pending. Children in this case are often used as a weapon against the parent with custody, and it’s situations like these that can be avoided with proper durable perimeter security and other sign-in security measures.
