@smitho1990 They are called Vericool - VeriCool - School Reception
Badges are supplied to all staff, visitors and sixth form. Weeks later it paid off as we caught someone snooping around without a badge. They are strongly recommended not just for safeguarding children, but property as well which may help swing your cause.
All of our staff and students have college issued ID. The cards are Salto cards, the staff use them for access control and the students use them for e-registration and to a lesser extent access control too. Plans are afoot to use them for cashless catering as well.
Well today I have been asked to go with Year 5 for their swimming lessons as I am one of only 4 male staff members (ooh that sound rude now I read it back).
Last time I went and stood outside the boys changing room I felt very uncomfortable as people were clearly wondering why I was there and looking at me rather suspiciously.
It occurs to me that if I was wearing an official looking school ID badge then perhaps people would not be so suspicious...although nobody actually challenged me as to why I was there
