Security for Schools

The security measures put in place at school properties are one of the main determining factors to the success of the establishment. Not only do staff and students need to feel safe during the day but all school property should be secure overnight.

The security risks to schools are minimal if managed correctly. The Oakwood Security Keyholding service comes highly recommended within the school community for its convenience and limited costs. For just £1.00 per day, schools can benefit from a highly trained professional responding to alarm activations. Should you choose to undertake this service, the keys will be held unmarked and secure at a nearby 24 hour Mobile Response Unit, who respond to activations in an efficient and professional manner. Oakwood will deploy a trained security operative to your school property within 20 minutes of an alarm going off. If necessary, Oakwood will liaise with a company representative, the police, alarm companies or repair contractors, all whilst re-securing the premises as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Prior to deployment, a thorough Risk Assessment and Site Survey will be conducted. From this, a fully comprehensive set of Site Instructions will be completed to ensure any Keyholding and Alarm Response duties can be carried out with ease and to prevent delay should action need to be taken.

Meet and Greet
If you would rather not supply access information and keys to a third party supplier but would still like the peace of mind provided by the support of a security team our Meet and Greet service is perfect for you. As part of the service, if you receive notification of an activation an SIA licensed guard will meet you at the premises and support you when you investigate the property ensuring you remain safe.
