How do I create a safe learning environment?
When transforming the school classroom, it is important to consider all aspects that contribute to creating a safe learning environment. Importantly, teachers must focus on the learning space design with extra thought around functionality, flexibility, and cleanliness.
Creating a classroom that is organised makes it a lot easier to teach effectively, and one of the most important things teachers can do to promote learning is to create classroom environments where children feel safe.
There are a number of things you can do to set up learning environments that feel safe and organised. Here are some tips:
Invest in Mobile School Classroom Furniture
Purchasing classroom furniture pieces that are flexible, allows you to easily transform your learning space for different purposes. Make sure that your classroom furniture can be transformed to foster collaborative learning, whilst keeping students at a healthy distance from their peers. At Abax Kingfisher, we supply lightweight classroom furniture that is easy and safe for students and teachers to move around.
Use Ergonomic Furniture
Investing in ergonomic school classroom chairs and tables promotes the health and well-being of all students. Ergonomic furniture protects growing bodies against aches and potential injuries. At Abax Kingfisher, our furniture has been chosen with a focus on being safe for young bodies to sit and work on all day. The ultimate benefit of ergonomic furniture is that is promotes productivity as a result of the student’s comfort.
It is important that teachers can easily supervise all students at once. To do so, arrange your classroom furniture so that you have a clear view of your whole room to keep an eye on all students. Set the space up so you can easily walk around and engage with students, this allows you to provide support to students while keeping control of the classroom.
Prioritise Health and Cleanliness
Keeping learning spaces sanitary has become a high priority for schools. When purchasing classroom furniture, opt for surface materials that are durable and easy-to-clean, such as vinyl, laminate, and performance fabrics. Maintaining safe learning environments can be fostered by separating collaborative and individual workspaces, allowing teachers to clean one area while students are using the other.
