This booklet offers guidance on how to improve school security, including advice on the management of security and the roles of local education authorities, school governors, and headteachers.

The selection of specific security measures is discussed including visitor access control, fire detection systems, cash handling, out of hours access, property marking, computer security, intruder alarms, secure storage, and car parking and vehicle security.
