Our children are precious to us. As a result, we take their safety and security very seriously. Hence besides security guards at the gate, we also have floor supervisors on each floor on the corridors and a security guard near the KG section during their school times as well.

We have 35 CCTV cameras placed in various locations of the school and a staff member to monitor the activity during school hours. There are fire extinguishers on every floor and the staff have been trained on how to use them in case of an emergency. Both the CCTV cameras and the fire extinguishers are maintained to see they are always in working condition.

A Child Protection Committee has been in place now for over two years and any matter that is of concern with regard to child safety is referred to the Committee for redressal. A School Safety Committee is also in place to check on the safety aspects to be monitored on a regular basis.

Parents are issued ID cards that must be presented to pick up their young ones. All the staff are asked for police verification and their background is checked before employing them in our service.
