It is widely recognised that the high level of school violence is critically damaging to South Africa’s future. When schools are unable to provide an environment in which learners develop the skills essential for a democracy to thrive, it can only have a negative impact on our potential to develop as a stable and democratic society.


There are a number of indicators for a Safe School Environment:

  • a school that is free from violence and crime

  • a postive and welcoming school climate

  • school users do not experience fear and intimidation

  • a drug and alcohol free environment

This site provides schools, and their stakeholders, with the tools, techniques and material required to ensure the safety of their schools, staff and learners.
