AN EXTRA Pounds 22 million will be earmarked for improving security in schools, Estelle Morris, the school standards minister announced this week. Local authorities can allocate funds to schools which need security cameras, keypad entry systems, fencing or staff training - including self-defence courses for staff and governors.
