Academy perimeter

A perimeter security case study of a city primary academy.

Shireland Hall Primary Academy in Smethwick, three miles from Birmingham city centre, has specified 250 metres of 2.1m high HiSec V-Beam around the perimeter of the school on the corner of Montague Road and Edith Road.

Zaun added one of the V-Beams to the top of the panels to add rigidity to the perimeter fence and ensure panels do not bow, after discussions with the architect and Birmingham fencing contractor Park Lane Fencing. Some 125m of Wolverhampton-based manufacturer Zaun’s Duo6 panels have been installed by Park Lane.

The primary academy points, sadly, to risks of random acts of violence and sometimes retribution and legal responsibility as reasons for safeguarding.

Vice principal Fiona Wilkes said: ‘As part of the Elliot Foundation we are committed to working with children, families and the local community supporting children to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
‘So it is brilliant to have a learning environment that feels so safe and secure without it looking like a fortress and we are grateful to Park Lane Fencing and Zaun for making it possible.’ Visit:
