SACRED HEART INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL SECURITY MISSION
Any Campus must be protected from safety and security risks and hazards,
irrespective of threats originating from internal or external sources. Peace and safety
should be maintained round-the-clock. Every member of the SHIS Community within
the SHIS campus will bear an onus of responsibility so that each person, all material and
the properties of SHIS are safe and secured. It is now the right time for us at SHIS to
understand that we need to come together and strengthen our safety and security. 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
SHIS is taking necessary steps to enhance overall security management in the main
campus. SHIS strives to focus on protecting all students and staff. A security policy has
been developed to enable SHIS security staff to perform their duties with fairness and
Our Security policy outlines certain procedures to be followed on SHIS campus.
1. Staff and students are requested to wear their identity cards to ease identification
by security staff. Security is provided round-the-clock at the campus.
2. The Safety and Security Department monitor issues related to school safety and
security. Necessary prevention programs like Fire Evacuation, Lockdown and
Bomb Threat are developed and periodically reviewed to assist school and
administrators in evaluating school safety. It also provides training in security and
safety to its guards and other staff.
3. The campus sees a security booth at every exit point.
4. SHIS also takes a strong stand against drug and alcohol abuse, along with a
zero-tolerance policy towards bullying. In addition to dorm parent mentoring, a
school counselor is available to assist troubled students.
5. Local police are also at hand in case of any unforeseen irregularities and respond
quickly to contact.
In today's world, security is an increasing priority for schools. 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. The entire campus of SHIS, as well as each and every classroom is
equipped with continuous CCTV surveillance to ensure the safety and well-being of the students.
The cameras are linked to a central monitoring system where every child is assessed regularly.
This makes the entire process completely transparent so as to avert any untoward event.
For the security and safety of the students an effective firefighting system has been installed with
smoke detectors. Experts have been invited to guide the students and management in learning
appropriate emergency processes.
Authorities of Sacred Heart International School have installed CCTV cameras and GPS in all
school buses with proper recording facilities. The cameras have been strategically placed in the
front, middle and rear sides of the school buses to ensure maximum coverage. Surveillance
cameras give the school authorities the ability to keep a check on the students when they are out
of school premises while travelling to school or back home. Each bus has a helper and a female
attendant who look after the children.
There is SMS service that keeps the parents informed about the curriculum regularly followed in
the schools, and keeping them informed about their children progress in the classroom. It also
updates the parents with their child’s attendance. This serves an important way for the parents to
communicate with the school authorities. Also, parents can talk to teachers of any subject over
phone numbers provided by the schools at stipulated timings.
