“Meraki MV has really bolstered us in the physical security game. Our staff love the fact that Meraki provides a watchful eye over our school site 24-7 . We have perimeter fencing but video security keeps everything safe. We have a large forest by our school area and having the CCTV means we can use it at the weekends which has given staff flexibility on how they work
Tom Henesey, Headteacher at Drybrook Primary School
The schools already had CCTV surveillance but it was outdated and the Trust were concerned that this lack of visibility would take a toll on school safety. The campuses had experienced a couple of incidents out of hours which the existing CCTV had not aided with, and so evidently, with student safety being a primary concern, finding a solution that both did the required job and made school security easier to manage was a priority for the Trust.
