We cannot afford to be complacent, so far as safety and security aspects are concerned. These are now global issues and have surpassed all geographical boundaries.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Manchester International School is taking necessary steps to enhance overall security management in the main campus.

A security policy has been developed to enable Manchester International School security staff to perform their duties with fairness and consistency.
Our Security policy outlines certain procedures to be followed on Manchester International School campus.

It also provides training in security and safety to its guards and other staff.
- The campus sees a security booth at every exit point.

In today's world, security is an increasing priority for schools. There are real and potential treats for students, teachers and material assets. CCTV has become increasingly popular for schools and education facilities The CCTV is in operation in the school campus and is being monitored and recorded for the purposes of crime prevention, prevention from bullying, for the safety of our staff and students and for the protection of school property. This system is in operation round the clock, every day.Issues such as burglary, vandalism, anti-social behaviour and unwanted visitors need to be addressed by all education establishments. With the ever-increasing cost of new technologies in schools, the risk of burglary and vandalism need to be given the appropriate consideration. Having surveillance solutions can be a great tool to decrease the risk of such issues. CCTV is now being used to reduce bullying by placing cameras at strategic locations. When an incident occurs, a teacher can review the footage and identify the culprit or culprits. Some schools are using CCTV footage as an evidence to show the parents of misbehaved students that their child has a problem.
We realize that Manchester International School needs to be a happy home away from home for our students to succeed, and are always looking at ways to raise the bar and provide a memorable residential school experience.
