Current Advice and Guidance

The Current Advice Regarding School Lockdown Procedures

Safety in schools is crucial for staff, visitors and pupils, with school officials having a duty of care and a legal responsibility to provide a safe environment.

The NASUWT has called for schools to have a concrete protocol to use during a lockdown. Therefore, it is imperative that to ensure staff and pupil safety, your school adopts a lockdown plan.

Direct advice from The National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) states that fire alarms should be avoided during a lockdown to reduce incorrect responses to the incident.
