Teaching our children, the dangers of using a gun needs to become a top priority in the country. We can prevent these accidental killings, accidental shootings, and school shootings if we just took a little time to teach our children proper gun
In the past and present, school safety is one of the number one priorities of any school district. Having a safe and secure learning environment is crucial in getting children of any age the education that they need and deserve. When this security is threatened it can be either directly, for the victims of school shootings, or indirectly, for the students that hear about these incidents and no longer feel as safe when they are in their school. When a tragic event happens like what recently happened in Florida, there will be an argument and as with any argument, there will be many sides. Some ideas for school safety that have come out of this incident include, gun control laws, mental health screenings, and things that can be done in schools to control the situation of having an active shooter.
The really great thing is that if the school has staff that are carrying guns, it will hopefully intimidate and discourage shooters so the teachers don't even have to use the guns, making the school a much safer place. Think of the teachers who are injured in school shootings trying to say their students' lives. Whether those students are 5 or 20 it does not matter. Every person deserves the right to protect his or her self. In order to keep teachers in line, maybe do an even deeper background check before hiring them.
They can investigate child abuse cases as they have specialist training. The Police also have powers to enter premises to ensure that children are immediately protected against significant harm. Schools: Schools have a duty to protect children from harm and abuse of any kind, they should identify any concerns and to act upon this information. Staff to attend child protection and first aid courses; if there are specific cases staff should undergo appropriate training on medical issues on safeguarding all children. The school should manage risks appropriately such as internet.
A big question is if arming teachers is even going to matter if an active shooter happens to be in that school. What a lot of people do not take into consideration is that the teachers must go through training and have to be liable to the responsibilities they are taking once they have a concealed carry weapon. Arming teachers could help lower the number of school shootings because the reaction times will be much faster, and it will add a bit of security to the children. Arming teachers will help lower the number of school shootings. If teachers are liable and are fine with carrying concealed weapons in schools, they would be able to respond to the site of the shooting much faster than it would be waiting for the police to arrive.
In order to minimize it, as times change we need to evolve, just as with anything. This may mean now and in the future we practice active shooter scenarios just as we practice fire drills. Also, allowing our school personnel to have their carry concealed while on school premises, to have added coverage for safety. I believe it is necessary to take all precautions to protect our children, especially until something more is done about mental health; in and out of schools. If we want to see change, there are other things we can do to decrease gun violence, than just to make stricter gun
There are many ways in which they have to comply, and the employer is responsible for the health and safety procedures and these will vary depending of the type of school, but they are required to carry out risk assessments and suitable procedures for any new situation which may increase the risks for example when on a school trip, comply with, complete and allow access to any appropriate paperwork which could be requested during an inspection under the Act, provide a school health and safety policy and ensure that all staff are aware and understand it. It is vitally important that all areas of the school are safe for children. This includes in addition to those mentioned above ensuring that classroom furniture, PE equipment and other specialised equipment such as that used in chemistry etc. as well as playground furniture are in a satisfactory condition in order to avoid any accidents while learning or playing
It is essential for schools to ensure rules and amendments are concisely communicated to staff, parents, and students; ensure consistency and be unbiased with all students; ensure school officials rightly stress their concern about violence, drug use, and other criminal behavior among the student population and implement positive strategies with students to help them make better choices in life. In addition, the Fourth Amendment plays a major role in the community. It is importance for schools to develop a relationship with local businesses and community leaders; because school aged students are our future community leaders. It is also important for the schools to collaborate with community leaders such as federal agencies and universities to develop and implement programs, which address violence and other criminal behavior in schools as a prevention
This should not be a worry for the child or parents but it has to be because at this point any school is a threat. So a possible factor in decreasing shootings is arming teachers, by doing this teachers can fight back instead of shielding or running from the shooter. Reason #2 teachers can defend their students by changing this law and using correct training teachers should be able to carry a weapon. By doing this not only insure safety it will give relief for parents all over the country. This tactic will give school staffs a chance to outnumber a possible shooter.
As an educator, it is important that I create a supportive learning environment. To do this I must implement school, curriculum and legislative requirements. My school and system requirements include reporting unsafe and unexpectable behaviour on the detention board (4.4.2). Another school requirement that promotes student’s well-being and safety is the Keys to Success behaviour system. The whole- school approach is implemented in my classroom and on the playground.
The example is when the teacher contacts the dyslexia specialist regarding the student, who may have dyslexia. To support the teacher’s concerns, the initial assessment should be forwarded to the specialist. It is a good practice to keep copies of the certificates in the event that the student loses the original. Ofsted inspectors will also want to see the records of assessments in order to assess if I meet the framework criteria. As proven above there are many reasons to keep all the assessments records and the teacher has to understand that keeping the assessments records is the teacher
In today’s education world, children are coming to our schools with different family, racial, ethnic, and religious upbringings; therefore, as an educational leader I will have to demonstrate an appreciation to all the diversity within our school community. I will have to plan and develop policies and procedures that support our diverse family. As a leader, I will have to research the different cultures that will exist within my school in order to treat everyone fairly, equitably, and with dignity and respect. According to ISLCC standard 6 the administrator should ensure the environment in which schools operate is influenced on behalf of students and their families. As a leader, he/she should know how to communicate with the decision makers as well as with the families of the students, and his/her faculty and staff.
ESA #6A Task 4 4(a) Review and evaluate building-based policies and procedures relevant to the protection of the welfare and safety of students, staff, and visitors within the selected school. Buckeye Career Center has a variety of policies and procedures dealing with safety of individuals on the property. The procedures, defined both in the public student handbook and the private safety plan, will be reviewed in that order. The first safety policy listed in the student handbook is the safety test.

Regular talks during school, to explain and reinforce the consequences of bullying/cyberbully, verbal and physical abuse is not tolerated. Discussion is a vital form of communication as well as reinforcing what has been discussed.
