Lockabox in Education


With average class sizes in schools within the UK increasing year by year, the demands and responsibilities of keeping an eye on a whole class have risen, making it an ever stressful and tricky task. It’s easy to be preoccupied by the daily stress of a classroom environment, from your Pritt sticks going “missing” or catching students distracted by their phones and avoiding doing their set work. Our Lockabox One can help with both safeguarding and those day to day annoyances.

How Lockabox can help:

  • Technology jail/safe 

With over 61% of children owning a mobile phone by the age of 10, phones are bound to be the number one distraction in any classroom or learning environment, featuring at various points of a school day whether this is during lessons, in the corridors or out in the playground. The Lockabox One Crystal is the perfect solution to keep confiscated items safely stored away whilst giving pupils peace of mind as possessions can still be seen – as we all know, the number one worry for them is that they won’t get it back! 

  • Medication storage:

The NEU (National Education Union) states that all medicines stored within a school property must be kept securely in lockable facilities, whilst being out of reach of children. The Lockabox One is the perfect size for keeping pupils medications in a contained place to ensure correct and timely administration. It can also be used and stored in fridges and freezers allowing it to also be a safe storage option for pupils prescribed medication that are required to be kept cold.

  • Safe storage of classroom items

There are many classroom items that have a tendency to go walkabout when your back is briefly turned, from scissors and Pritt sticks (glues) to calculators and notebooks. The Lockabox One allows items to be stored safely whilst still allowing easy access if and when items are required. Our boxes are stackable meaning there are plenty of storage options for all the items that need protecting during day to day classroom activities. 

The Lockabox One is easily adaptable into all aspects of daily school life from making life within classrooms a little bit easier to providing that extra bit of peace of mind with the safe storage of valuable or potentially harmful items. 

At Lockabox®, we love helping schools find better (and safer) storage options. If you’re looking for a way to store certain items, don’t hesitate to reach out – we offer volume purchasing and can discuss your requirements further to ensure our boxes are the right product for you.
