The health and safety of children in school is of paramount concern to us and so, throughout the year, we regularly hold fire drills and lockdown drills. This is to ensure that systems are effective and that all stakeholders know what to do in the event of an emergency. We have already held a fire drill this term and at some point before Xmas, will be holding a lockdown drill. This will involve children being secured in classrooms, with window blinds down and doors locked. Children will be warned that this is going to happen at some point over the next few weeks, in order to minimize any anxiety when it happens. In the past, these type of drills have passed with no issues.
