Introduction: Over the past few decades, school-related occurrences have increased, putting school age children and youth at risk from human caused accidents and natural disasters. Understanding secondary school safety and security culture is crucial owing to children' increasing emotional capability, immature mental state, and physical fragility. This study examines this crucial issue from Gujranwala and Karachi students, teachers, and administrators.

Methodology: Employing a quantitative methodology, this research relies on a survey administered to fifty respondents. This approach is chosen to address a significant knowledge gap, providing detailed insights into the safety procedures adopted within educational settings. The survey design allows for a structured analysis of the safety and security culture prevalent in secondary schools.

Results: The findings show a supportive safety and security culture of cooperation, open communication, and shared accountability among students, teachers, and administrators. Positive school culture reduces immediate threats. The report recommends safety education programs to mitigate danger over  time, while student and instructor health awareness can reduce risk immediately. Despite the cross-sectional design and small sample size, the results demonstrate the importance of a strong safety culture in schools.

Future Direction: To further understand school safety dynamics, future research should use varied methods, broaden geographical coverage, and use longitudinal studies. These projects could improve school safety regulations and build stronger safeguards. These future directions aim to promote school safety scholarship and empower evidence-based policymaking.
