Bomb Scares

Lots of you will be aware of the hoax bomb threats that were received by schools around the UK on Wednesday this week. We did not receive such a threat but I wanted to reassure you that we have procedures in place and systems for contacting families in an emergency.

The nature of emergencies is that you never know what and when the emergency will be, but we have planned, rehearsed and discussed scenarios as staff. We do not talk in specifics to the children as we feel this could easily cause anxiety but we rehearse for incidents where we need to collect together indoors and for those where we need to evacuate the building.
