As part of a Central Bedfordshire directive we have a plan for "lockdowns". Lockdown procedures are important and would be used in response to an internal or external incident which could be a threat to the safety of staff and children in the school.
Lockdown procedures may be activated in response to any number of situations, these may be:
- A reported incident, disturbance in the local community
- An intruder on the site
- A warning being received regarding a local risk of air pollution (smoke plume, gas cloud etc)
- A major fire in the vicinity of the school
- The close proximity of a dangerous dog roaming close
In the event of an actual lockdown parents will be notified by a text message as soon as possible.
Our lockdown procedure has restricted access. If you would like to see a copy please contact the school office.
