We have the technology these days, why not use it to protect the vulnerable and those who work with them for prevention and safety of all?

A family member was subjected to restraint and exclusion within school. They were locked out of class as strategies to manage autistic and adhd behaviours. They needed support and were often punishment for adults getting their support wrong .Clear strategies were ignored and could have prevented the trauma they suffered.Cameras need to be installed to keep kids safe from unlawful practices.It also keeps staff safe from any untrue accusations due to other staff members

So shocking for this to happen, so I think all schools and Nurseries should be fitted with CCTV.

No child should be restrained or hurt while in school especially children that have any sort of disability.

The introduction of cameras would protect staff from false allegations as well as all children including those who are most vulnerable.

It would not only safeguard the children but also the teachers. We should be promoting open visable trusting towards our most vulnerable tberfor it should be openly used like cctv on our streets to aid the safety of all.
