Evoke are bursting with pride this month as the UK wide Avaya ‘Safe School’ Media Campaign commenced its rollout across key education and unified communication publications. Here are some of the first publications to run the story.
Unfortunately, the hot topics of conversation within the press now centre around not just threat to children from external factors but more worryingly from within the school’s own campus.
The Home Affairs Committee has criticised the government’s current youth violence reduction strategy as inadequate and has compiled a comprehensive study into the causes of and possible solutions to youth violence.
The Committee believes that schools in areas with a higher risk of youth violence should be given dedicated police officers. In an era where we have almost forgotten the sight of a ‘bobby on the beat’, quite how this level of policing will be funded or provided is a key question.
Again, the Committee called on the new prime minister, Boris Johnson, to take “personal responsibility” for tackling knife and gun crime among young people. Whilst these critical issues are being addressed, we need to ensure that as Telecoms solution providers, we are working closely across educational establishments to use the best technology available to try to protect against potential dangerous incidents.
Evoke are pioneers of supporting safety in schools and our hope is that by educating the wider UK population on the ‘art of the possible’ for Smart school and campus solutions, that we will be able to keep schools safe for the current and future generations of children.
