The Department for Children, Schools and
Families has published Managing School
Facilities Series Guides on Security (No 4) and
Fire Safety (No 6) which taken together will
eliminate many incidents as access to the
buildings will be controlled with good security.
More recently the Department has published
Key design guidance for schools, 2004,which
addresses the issue of security in schools with
particular reference to the Secured by Design
(SBD)
(ref) approach backed by ACPO.

There is a DCSF online assessment for schools
to find out if the are at risk from arson at
www.teachernet.gov.uk/emergencies/resources
/arson/index.html

The Home Office Crime Reduction website
offers guidance in the form of a toolkit, see
www.crimereduction.gov.uk/toolkits/ssh00.htm
for details.

Further guidance on the reducing the risk of
arson has been published by the Arson
Prevention Bureau – see the website
