Schools Emergency Planning

What to do if an emergency happens when your children are at school

If your children are at school you will naturally want to collect them as soon as possible in the event of a major emergency. But it may not be safe to do so.

Tune into your local radio station Heart FM on 102.3.

Otherwise, check the school website of your child’s school. They will give advice and details, letting parents know when to collect their children from school.

All schools have plans to cope with local emergencies such as fire and flood. Teachers and support staff do all they can to look after the pupils in their charge.

Find out more about school emergency planning from the GOV.UK website, or by talking to your school.
