Info for parents
Tomorrow morning, we are going to have a practice of our “Lockdown” procedure. Similarly to a fire drill, we are now asked to have plans in place for both evacuation and isolation of the building . There are some incidents for which staying put is the safer option. This may include severe weather, an incident in the local community or a distressed child. All schools in Highland are developing these procedures – this is not in response to any perceived risk. This has possibly been discussed with your child already or they will be told about it tomorrow morning before the practice takes place. We ask you to chat this through with them and reassure that it is a normal procedure that will be treated the same way as a fire drill. Similarly to the fire drill, this will be practiced at different times throughout the year so that children and staff are familiar with the procedure.
