Most schools recognise the need to be ready for a crisis. But…

One of the great problems with preparing for a crisis within a school is that the preparation can just seem to involve too much time.

Most of us recognise the fact that at some time or other our school could face an event that requires us to act quickly and assuredly when dealing with pupils, staff and parents, and of course the media.

Most schools recognise that to be able to do this they really need to undertake some training to ensure that all members of staff have the capacity to handle the situation well, in a controlled, sympathetic and confident manner.

But aren’t all the courses that offer such training long, complex and held elsewhere?

To help ensure that the school is equipped as and when a crisis situation arises, and to offer suitable training with a minimal amount of disruption to the school, we’ve introduced a new approach to crisis training which takes place on your schools premises.

It starts with an audit of the school’s existing crisis management systems (to ensure that they are legally compliant) and is followed by the training of the key members of staff so that they will know exactly what to do if something unfortunate occurs.

Thus, if and when something awful does happen the key members of staff can take control and work through the process, helping those involved, helping the children’s parents if need be, and helping the school manage the most difficult of circumstances.

If you would like to see how your school could be prepared and ready to cope with anything that should happen, with a minimum of fuss and disruption, please take a look at or call us on 01183 800 140.
