In order to teach and to learn, staff and pupils must feel safe and secure.

As those working in education are only too well aware, schools are increasingly becoming the target of vandals, petty thieves and drug users

Criminal and anti-social behaviour can cause disruption to the work of the school, physical and mental damage to people and damage to buildings. Worse, fear is created amongst pupils, staff and parents, which is out of all proportion to the actual crimes committed.

There are thousands of incidents a year in our schools, they are disruptive, they do cause damage and they do cause fear. The overall cost is enormous.

Trends indicate that overall, crime is being reduced but certain types of crime particularly arson are increasing. Losses through arson are a significant national statistic of great concern to insurance companies and LEA’s alike.


Stanground Academy has used Intacept Security for a number of years and they have and they have always provided an excellent service to us, passing information on alarm activations and providing back up to our site staff whenever required. Excellent value for peace of mind!
