During our childhood, most of us would have been allocated a locker at a school or club to keep our personal belongings safe and to keep the environment clear of clutter. It is a simple, but effective method for helping school goers secure their things in a dedicated area.
Providing school lockers with a secure lock can also limit the potential for property going missing. The truth is that belongings do often need a level of protection from others within the school, or from those who may be able to access the school.
There are many benefits to providing your students with school lockers. The first and most obvious is the immediate level of security it facilitates, helping students protect their belongings from getting lost or stolen.
School lockers also offer younger students a level of independence and responsibility that they may not have yet experienced. Making them responsible for ensuring that their locker is kept in good condition and that their valuable belongings are kept safe inside, is a small but important step towards teaching them about real-world responsibilities.
As students get older, they begin to crave a level of privacy that is often difficult to achieve in an open environment like a school. School lockers provide a private space where students can keep their belongings and sets boundaries.
A good-sized school locker, like those that we offer at First Mats, is also a great way to help improve the health and safety within your school. Children can store large and heavy items in their school lockers, meaning they do not have to carry them with them, putting unneeded strain on their backs.
The size and height of our range of school lockers make them the perfect option for primary or junior schools or any other business or club that deals with children within this age category. For example, alongside schools, these lockers are a perfect storage option for sports clubs that cater to a younger audience.
With our smallest unit measuring just 96cm high, they are easy for small children to access for quick and convenient storage. They are also extremely hardwearing so can take the daily wear and tear associated with being installed in a busy school location.
Which school locker you should use depends widely on your requirements. Schools with older children or with requirements for additional storage may decide to opt for a higher locker with more compartments.
You should also ask yourself what the purpose of the locker will be. Our taller lockers come with a built-in coat hook, making them perfect for storing coats and baggage throughout the day. For smaller storage requirements our three and four-tier school lockers may be a simpler, more effective solution.
