and schools are not always free from fear, intimidation or victimisation. The Department of Basic Education in partnership with the SAPS is committed to preventing, managing and responding to incidents of crime and violence in schools.
Prevention and early intervention are the most reliable and cost-effective ways to support schools in consistently delivering teaching and learning in an environment that is physically and socially safe.
Schools are encouraged to establish and maintain a Safe School Committee. A Safe School Committee comprises of internal stakeholders of the school, for example learners, educators, School Governing Body (SGB) members and school security personnel. External role players include the SAPS, the Metropolitan Police, local ward councillors, social workers and Community Police Forums (CPFs).
