{{Template:ValueDescription |key = amenity |value = school |image = File:Gym Bachgasse.jpg |description = Institution designed for learning under the supervision of teachers. |onNode = yes |onWay = no |onArea = yes |onRelation=no |lang = en |combination = * {{Template:Tag|name}} * {{Template:Tag|operator}} |status = Approved }} Use {{tag|amenity|school}} to identify a place where pupils, normally between the ages of about 5 and 18 are taught under the supervision of teachers. This includes primary and secondary schools. See {{Template:Tag|amenity|kindergarten}}, {{Template:Tag|amenity|college}}, {{Template:Tag|amenity|university}} for other educational establishments. == How to map == Mark the boundary of the school using an [[Area]] or place a [[Node]] in the middle of the site if you are in a hurry (or don't have access to information about the boundary and it is not obvious from aerial imagery). This area should envelop the full grounds of the school including all the buildings, sports facilities and grounds. For schools with multiple sites the [[multipolygon]] relation can be used. Tag the element with {{Template:Tag|amenity|school}} and {{Template:Tag|name}} for the name of school. Suggested additional tags include: * {{Template:Tag|operator}} - Name of operator, often the local education authority. * {{Template:Tag|addr}} - Address details * {{Template:Tag|capacity}}, for the number of pupils taught at the school * {{Template:Tag|isced:level}}, for the educational level (proposed tags) * {{Template:Tag|fee||yes}} if the the school makes a direct charge for core services. * {{Template:Tag|religion}}, if the school is associated with a particular religion (also {{Template:Tag|denomination}}) * {{Template:Tag|wikipedia}}, for a link to a Wikipedia article about the school * {{Template:Tag|website}}, for a link to the school's own website [[File:Amenity school usage example.svg|left|frame|Tagging entrances to a school]] School buildings in turn be tagged with {{Template:Tag|building|school}} where they are used generally, and optional also with details of use with appropriate additional tags, for example {{Template:Tag|amenity|swimming_pool}}. Consider adding {{Template:Tag|school|entrance}} and if appropriate {{Template:Tag|barrier|gate}} to the points where roads, paths or other access routes into the school grounds cross the boundary of the school (which is tagged with {{Template:Tag|amenity|school}}. Building entrances can be mapped with a node on the building outline, with one of the following tags: *{{Template:Tag|entrance|main}} for the main entrance *{{Template:Tag|entrance|yes}} for secondary entries *{{Template:Tag|entrance|emergency}} for one-way out of the building in case of emergency *{{Template:Tag|entrance|service}} used only by employees or for delivering. Individual sports pitches can be tagged with {{Template:Tag|leisure|pitch}} and where an individual sport can be identified it can be tagged with {{Template:Tag|sport}} and the surface (grass, asphalt etc) with {{Template:Tag|surface}}. Areas of grass, possibly covering multiple pitches or used for other purposes can tagged with {{Template:Tag|landuse|grass}}. == See also == * [[Proposed features/Pre-School (early childhood education)]] Related terms: {{Template:RelatedTerm|institution}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|college}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|faculty}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|institute}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|class}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|academy}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|school}} {{Template:RelatedTerm|creed}}
