Schools in Lockdown

How we move forward | A RiskLogic Resource Page

The Focus Areas

During our thirty-minute webinar, we identified and picked out the three most discussed and queried points from the Ministry of Education’s report. Ensuring that stakeholders are aware and confident on what these are is important for progression.

People welfare & human considerations

Ensure that your staff and students are unseen, and unheard. Consider a method of activating people very quickly without causing stress and minimising disruption. Think about predetermined requirements like medication and who will oversee this for which students. Be prepared for social media to play a part in an event and use it to your advantage. Educate all personnel on expectations in an event.

The Logistics of a Lockdown

Identify where you get key facts from to help to determine where and how you make your next decision. Predetermine where you get that source of information. Identify where and what the threat is. Lockdown; unseen or unheard. Shelter in place; not an immediate threat, but containment is required. Distinguish the definitions and make the different processes obvious to all involved.

Immediate Actions & Procedures

Look at what you already have in place and identify where to make improvements. Identify gaps in your capability and build up experience in these areas by validating decisions made by staff during training. Instil a culture of resilience through staff, students and parents. Trust your training and review during a scenario and an event.

Download our Resource

Off the back of the webinar, we would like to offer you an opportunity to download some useful documents that will help in your resilience journey. These documents cover a detailed Shelter in Place and lockdown procedure that covers a useful checklist, the other is an emergency procedure for staff to hang somewhere in their office; this is often a good, quick reminder on best practices. Finally, we’ve also added a post incident template which you can use now to see how you did on March 15th.
