Enhancing School Safety: A Case Study on CCTV Installation at Marlborough Junior School

cctv Install birmingham   At CCTV Focus UK, we understand the critical importance of safety in educational environments. When Marlborough Junior School (MJS) in Birmingham approached us for a comprehensive CCTV solution, we knew the stakes were high. The school aimed to bolster its Child Safeguarding measures and potentially improve its Ofsted rating through a robust video surveillance system. Here’s how we delivered a solution that met and exceeded their expectations.

The Challenge: Safeguarding Students and Staff

Client: Marlborough Junior School (MJS) Location: Birmingham, UK Objective: Enhance child safeguarding, monitor entry and exit points, secure the premises, and improve Ofsted rating. Marlborough Junior School had no video surveillance in place and needed a system to:
  • Monitor and record entry and exit at the front gates to safeguard children and staff.
  • Oversee deliveries and provide evidence of suppliers causing roadblocks through illegal parking.
  • Protect the refuse area from frequent vandalism.
Additionally, the school required a high-definition system to ensure clear, detailed footage. Key areas needing coverage included the front gates, playground, and school corridors, with an emphasis on minimizing blind spots. Furthermore, with a construction company on-site for a new extension, strict Health & Safety procedures and a thorough Risk Assessment were essential, along with a minimum £10 million Public & Efficacy Liability Insurance.
