What is a Safe School?

  • A safe school provides a learning environment where children’s education, health, safety and security are assured in both normal times and during disasters.
  • A safe school consists of infrastructures that are structurally sound and facilities that do not harm the students, teachers and staff, especially during disasters.
  • A safe school is a community of learners committed in promoting a culture of safety, aware of its risks and prepared to respond to disasters.
  • A safe school has minimal disruption during disasters and thus continues to provide a healthy learning environment to the youth.
