The question of child safety is one which causes much tension for both the school administration and the parents. The number of crimes against children keeps going up as the years’ past. A large number of these cases happen either in the school premises or travelling to and fro from the school.
In addition to this, with the advancements in technology, security concerns are not just about physical safety of the child. Cybercrime cases are steadily on the rise as well. The leakage of sensitive information such as Aadhar card number and bank details can put the students in grave danger.
Ensuring student safety should be a top priority of any reputable school. However, by no means is it an easy task. It will also be an extremely time, energy and cost consuming task.
Next Learning Platform- A Complete Solution
Next Learning Platform, is a powerful solution that can handle all the academic and administrative needs of the school. It comes with a number of features that are designed to ensure the complete safety and security of the students. Validated by Beagle Security for its top-notch security features, NLP is the perfect solution for a schools’ security concerns.
The top security features of Next Learning Platform includes:
CCTV surveillance and GPS tracking:
To ensure top-notch security and safety for the students, NLP’s CCTV systems allow schools to schedule a recording for working days and holidays as per their requirement. In addition to this, both the schools and parents can keep track of the school buses throughout their journey. This is facilitated with the help of NLP mobile application. The system provides alerts in case there are delays. This allows for swift response in case of any emergencies such as vehicle breakdown or an accident. If the vehicle has no GPS tracker enabled, the location can betracked with the help of an employee’s phone.
Visitor management system:
With the daily reports of drug dealers in schools and imposters picking up children pretending to be relatives, it is essential that schools have a strict visitor management policy. Next ERP allows parents to create a list of visitors who will have access to their child. This ensures that only these authorised few outsiders can interact with the child. The phone-biometric details of parents and guardians collected initially by Next ERP ensures a fool-proof verification of t the visitors. The system will also maintain a record of the visitors, the amount of time they spent with the child as well as the purpose of their visit.
The attendance module of Next ERP ensures that parents get instant notifications in case a student is recorded absent in school. The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips in the student ID cards allow the schools to automatically record attendance when the students pass through the sensors which can be placed at the school entrances. Furthermore, NLP also facilitates period-wise attendance marking in the schools that record attendance multiple times in a day.
NLP aims to create a cashless campus’ across India, where parents no longer need to risk sending liquid cash to school with their children. This will go a long way in ensuring their safety and prevent them from getting conned by strangers. With the e-wallets of NLP, parents can just easily add money to the students’ wallets, make quick transactions and receive instant payment notifications.
Data leakage and data hampering can cause much loss for both the students as well as the school. Leakage of personal data such as an address, bank details, Aadhar card details etc. can have very severe effects on those affected. Such instances will also undermine the authenticity and integrity of the school. Next Learning Platform has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing technology, to ensure maximum data security. All transactional details such as bank account numbers will be dual encrypted and sent to a secure HTTPS connection, similar to bank transactions.
The robust communication module that is a part of NLP ensures that parents remain in the loop at all times. They receive instant alerts via push notifications as well as emails and SMS. This ensures that they will always be aware of the child’s activities. Changes in class timings, sudden holidays or extra classes will all be notified to the parents, allowing them to make plans accordingly. Such a communication system ensures child safety and puts the parents’ mind at ease while also ensuring that the school administration does not have to field hundreds of calls from concerned parents.
