The Department of Education (DOE) has a pivotal role in creating a conducive teaching and learning environment. Proactive engagement and active strategies are crucial in enabling students to learn safely and teachers to teach effectively. 1. Insuring Adequate Resources and Support for Schools: The DOE is responsible for providing sufficient resources and administrative support that allow schools to implement violence prevention strategies (Department of Basic Education, South Africa, 2015). These resources might include safe infrastructure, counseling services, secure technologies, and well-trained personnel capable of addressing potential instances of violence. 2. Monitoring and Evaluating School's Compliance: The DOE plays a significant role in ensuring all schools comply with policies related to school violence (Department of Basic Education, South Africa, 2015). They regularly review safety measures, enforcing disciplinary actions in cases of non-compliance. The DOE actively addresses schools' concerns and modifies policies to reflect the changing needs. 3. Fostering Partnerships with Community Organizations and Law Enforcement Agencies: The DOE is responsible for liaising with various community organizations and law enforcement agencies to collaboratively address violence within and beyond school premises (Department of Basic Education, South Africa, 2015). By doing so, it enhances the effectiveness of violence prevention efforts and ensures the safety of students even outside the school environment. South Africa's DOE has instituted several guidelines and policies to create a conducive learning environment. The South African School's Act (1996) emphasizes creating a violence-free atmosphere, and the National Education Policy Act (1996) articulates the roles and responsibilities of the departments in enabling so. Further, the DOE published guidelines for preventing and managing violence within schools in 2011, which is a crucial document detailing various measures for ensuring school safety (Department of Basic Education, South Africa, 2011).
