School Security

At First Response, we understand that handling school securing efficiently and effectively can be a real challenge. We help you to develop a safe learning environment for all by mitigating peer pressure, intimidation and bullying.

Complete Protection

Our highly-trained School Safety Officers are trained in safeguarding, first aid and child protection. Using their unique abilities they can assist you with reception duty, facilities coordination and event planning. Their presence offers your institution the complete protection that it needs while helping to reduce crime and the risk of antisocial or extremist behaviour.


Our trained officers can diligently control access points to the building, cutting down on the risk posed by intruders. This means our officers can monitor and react quickly to any developments as they arise.

Our officers conduct regular mobile patrols of both campus and accommodation facilities. This helps the First Response team to keep an ever-watchful eye on what is happening to protect your staff and students. Our officers also offer general maintenance services to drive further value for your institution.

90% of our clients witness a significant reduction in incidents and non-attendance. The presence of our officers means that potentially volatile situations can be prevented and diffused should they arise. The early identification of offences means that proactive intervention can reduce their frequency, leading to lower rates of theft and violence.

Case Studies

Reliable Education Security

At First Response, we have spent years protecting schools and colleges owned by the government. This includes the Central Bedfordshire College where our team of experienced security guards provide a manned presence at the main sites, as well as key holding and alarm response services for the wider facility.

Our service is structured in a way that respects and protects the diverse range of students and facilities that make up your institution. Our Student Safety Officers have all of the training and resources that they need to ensure that you have robust site security.

Step 2

Once a catered plan has been developed, our Student Safety Officers conduct regular mobile patrols that cover your entire premises. University and School Security Guards can also be positioned to offer around-the-clock security.

Step 3

A proactive approach means that your students, visitors, parents, staff, facilities and equipment are all kept perfectly safe. Our officers block intruders from entering while maintaining a professional and friendly demeanour. Between breaks and classes, our officers carefully monitor activities across the site.
