Schools step up safety measures for students

Close on the heels of the sexual assault and murder of a 7-year-old boy at Ryan International School in Gurgaon that triggered massive public outrage in the country, an alleged molestation incident in a local school here sparked tension on Monday. O. letter No. 10-11/2014-EE.4 dated 09.10.2014, (Annexure-1) CBSE Delhi on 12 September 2017 has uploaded Annexures for Safety of Children in Schools. Many parents have demanded action against such schools that are negligent towards conducting background check of their staff and following norms laid down by Central Board of Secondary Education and other regulatory boards. "We are introducing the practice of a lady attendant accompanying electrician/plumber during school hours", reads the list.

THE MURDER of a seven-year-old boy in the toilet of the Ryan International School in Gurugram has left parents in the city anxious about safety of their wards in schools. The school management had asked parents to register for the unique card on August 24 and the cards are being issued. "It is our moral duty to help all the children".

Telling about the subsequent rise in concern of parents about the safety of students "The onus for safety and security of children in school campus shall exclusively lie upon the school authorities". A similar alert will be sent to parents whenever their ward leaves from school and alights from the bus at his/her dropping point. "Students from nursery to grade 3 are handed over to authorized chaperones carrying the pick-up permit card. The school management should feel that it is accountable for the safety and security of the students on the campus or bus", he said.

Ashish Naredi, member of the Hyderabad Parents Associations, said, "It's a welcome step by the school to enhance safety and security".

Though the use of th-ese identification cards is a new concept in Indian schools, schools in the U.S. have been using them for many years. We have started hiring female staff for our school buses. "They should install CCTV cameras at the main locations of the school for better vigilance". The management has also invited parents to volunteer to check or suggest improvements to their safety procedures. "The school has also offered to charge a concessional/nominal fee for her entire schooling, up to Class XII". We do advi se them about not talking to strangers and telling them to stay in groups even in school, but there is a lot more than is lacking in schools. "However, it is also important that we have value system in place and a balanced mindset to avoid repetition of such horrific crimes", said Indira Kohli, principal, DPS, sector 122.

The department has vowed to conduct school visits and engagement sessions and to curb isolated incidents of bullying that may occur on or off school premises.

"Child's security is of utmost importance and we have stepped up surveillance and fortify the prevailing security measures to check any such mishaps".

Apart from the state government, the National Disaster Management Authority of India, too, released a school safety policy a year ago, highlighting the need for a safe environment for children starting from their homes to their schools and back.
