Exemplary safeguarding and the duty of care
For many people there is a perception that public sector organisations have to uphold higher standards than their private sector counterparts. In part, this is inferred by the central mission of each. A private business exists to generate profit from servicing customers, whereas a public organisation exists only to serve the needs of citizens and society as a whole.
However, when it comes to educational establishments there is no such distinction. Private as well as state-funded schools all need to demonstrate exemplary practice and governance around safeguarding and the duty of care.
All organisations, whether private or public, have to achieve cost efficiency. The case study explains how the working life of a large number of existing cameras was extended with upgrades, preserving the public investment already made in the infrastructure.
