Lockdown/Shelter-in-place training/INSET

lockdown exercise at school

I have developed lockdown/shelter-in-place procedure alongside 1 hour INSET sessions. These are useful as part of an overall school safety INSET and make ideal 'twilight session' INSET's. Included below is a plan for trainer or leader of INSET, A table top exercise, A news article about lockdown's in US schools, the procedure itself and link to video on this site as part of the starter.

An update:

Following training of staff since September, I have modified the procedure for staff so that it is a one page set of instructions. This makes it easier to digest and understand. I would suggest ensuring staff have a copy during the week that the first drill takes place so that they have procedures that they can follow, especially if all staff have not had training. It is important that students have also had some training about expectations as well as what the drill will involve. I will post resources to accompany this soon.
