Action Pack 3 firstly provides country offices with guidance o​​​​n how to undertake a basic assessment of the structural safety of the schools we work in. It will help us understand if the children and school community we support are safe in the buildings in which we work.

Secondly, the Action Pack outlines on how to navigate the process of preparing for retrofit/remodelling, refurbishment and potentially building school facilities as part of our programmes.

All SC projects involving new facilities construction or retrofit/remodelling or refurbishment must follow Save the Children’s Construction PolicyBenchmark Standards and Tools,​will meet our Commitment to Safer School Buildings​, and will follow best practices in Community-based Safer School Construction.​​

If you have any feedback or needs for support in how to use this Action Pack, please contact the Safe Schools helpdesk:​.​​​​​​

This Common Approach is a collaboration between Child Protection and Education Themes. For more information, please contact Lydia Baker, Project Lead, Safe Schools, or Clare Feinstein​​, Deputy Director, Child Protection – Program, Quality and Impact.
