The National School Safety Policy

The National School Safety Policy

The National School Safety Policy Guidelines was published in early 2016 by National Disaster Management Authority of India (NDMA). It envisions India where all children and their teachers, and other stakeholders in the school community are safe from any kind of risks due to natural hazards by making the schools risk resilient ensuring that all school children across the country remain safe from any kind of disaster risk as they access their right to education.

The policy envisages the following school safety responsibilities for the School Management:

  • Incorporate National school safety issues in the school development plan.
  • Ensure that teachers and non-teaching staff receive appropriate training in disaster risk reduction.
  • Ensure that relevant norms and standards for school safety are applied in their own school building and functions.
  • Ensure active and equitable participation of school community, including children andelected representatives for implementing School Development Plan.
