Little Aston Primary School near Sutton Coldfield caters for children aged 3 to 11. The school actively seeks to achieve the highest standards in everything so its pupils can achieve their full potential.
The team at Little Aston School knew its CCTV coverage needed to be updated and improved. The school had a CCTV camera system but, as Noreen Brain, Little Aston’s School Business Manager, explained: “It was outdated, not all cameras were working and we had insufficient coverage.” Staff were also particularly concerned about the school’s car park area: several incidents had occurred there but because it wasn’t monitored little could be done.
The first step for Noreen was to do some online research and draw up a shortlist of CCTV systems suppliers to quote for the work involved in upgrading the system. After reviewing the companies and their quotes, the school could see that Ecl-ips would be the best choice. Noreen explained: “It was clear that Ecl-ips could supply what was required in terms of products and service.”
Because Little Aston School wanted to have the benefit of HD CCTV as soon as possible, Ecl-ips installed the new system in the final weeks of a busy summer term. Fortunately, Ecl-ips’s engineers have a great deal of experience of working in busy school environments and carried out the installation tidily, quietly and efficiently so they didn’t disrupt the school day. Noreen commented: “The team were very good and very helpful and everything went smoothly. They were a pleasure to have on-site.”
