The safety and well- being of student is of the utmost importance to RNS. Comprehensive school safety is fundamental to students’ school success and achievement. Our primary role is to provide children a safe and secure environment where they can grow academically, socially and emotionally. School safety policies and procedures are set in place to make schools safer and to have a course of action to take in the event of unsafe situations. Students and staff, as well as parents, should understand policies and procedures that are meant to help schools maintain safety to be sure that they are able to follow them when needed.
Safety procedures help keep students safe in unpredictable circumstances. They are procedures that should be followed in the event of a fire and a weather emergency such as hurricane, flood, or earthquake. Each time a school sets a procedure that is designed to protect students and staff from unsafe situations, it should be practiced. Procedures need to be taught first to staff and teachers, so that they can be familiar with them. Then, students should be led through drills for each of the types of emergency procedures so that they can be prepared if the need should arise. Superintendents, school boards and principals set safety procedures by determining which types of safety threats might be possible at schools. Step-by-step instructions are written down and are posted in hand books, on walls and in places where they can be accessed during an emergency.
The School Safety Manual is designed to help schools plan for all hazards. This manual identifies best practices for risk management and recovery for all hazards. The intent of this manual is to serve as an easy referral document for the administrator when confronted with routine problems of daily operation.
As part of our school safety plan, our schools are looked all the time. Before entering any school building, each person will be asked to provide specific information that includes his/her full name and purpose for his/her visit and visitor pass will be issued. This includes classroom volunteers, parents attending classroom celebrations, parents wanting to look in the lost and found for their child’s coat, etc. This is not a realistic expectation for large scale activities like school programs in the gym, Parent Conferences, etc. If you have a need to observe your child at a recess, please make arrangements with the principal through the office. Security Cameras are being installed at main entrance and mid-way school doors and will be monitored by displays in the school office.
It is important to remember, however, that for any policy to be successful, it must be developed and implemented with the full participation and support of school board members, administrators, parents, students, community members and emergency response personnel. Without such shared responsibility, the opportunity to successfully implement safe school policies and procedures is diminished.
The safety and security of all students and staff at Riyadh Najed Schools is one of our most important priorities. Families trust schools to keep children safe during each and every school day as well as during all school sponsored events. Communities expect schools to be safe havens for children to learn and school employees to work. School buildings are key centers in each community. Children of all ages rely on and look to adults for protection from harm.
Riyadh Najed Schools is committed to providing a safe, healthy and supportive environment. The purpose of RNS Safety Committee is to establish controls designed to provide a physical environment free of recognized hazards, monitor student and staff activities to reduce the risk of injuries and ultimately preserve the safety of all persons while on school property. The safety committee is structured to promote a culture of safety and health throughout Riyadh Najed Schools, to find solutions for safety concerns and to promote a safe and secure environment for students, staff and community.
The main goal of RNS Safety Committee is to eliminate RNS injuries and illnesses by involving employees and administrators in identifying hazards and establishing policy and procedures to prevent them. This goal targets students, employees, visitors, and the general public while on school property.
Principals formulate individual school safety plans to address potential hazards or crises at their site. All administrators, all teachers, and all bus drivers have emergency action checklists. It is each school’s responsibility to remain proactive by promoting a learning environment free of crime, violence, discrimination, and the effects of drugs and alcohol.
School Security Services provides 24 hour-a-day protection and service to the school community. Its officers are well equipped and prepared to handle school site disruptions, threats to school personnel, property damage, theft, vandalism, and burglary. School security officers also conduct random metal detection searches in our schools on a regular basis. In addition officers provide general guidance on safety and security measures and concerns.
