Educational establishments worldwide have a requirement to keep pupils and staff safe and  to protect the valuable assets including buildings and equipment safe from fire. Arson in schools in some countries has been an increasing problem
Schools are also quite diverse in their occupancy and physicality, a normal classroom is obviously quite different to a physics laboratory or a craft workshop.
During unoccupied periods a different set of rules may apply to the role of the fire protection system perhaps increasing in sensitivity, especially when for prolonged period the buildings may be empty during holiday periods. Minimising disruption to the school day as a result of unwanted alarms can be critical, especially during examinations and so the reliability factor is extremely important when selecting a suitable system.
