Emergency Evacuation Procedure
In the event of an aftershock we will follow the earthquake procedure which is practiced regularly at school.
stop, drop and cover
wherever they may be.
If the aftershock is
significant we will assemble out on the field in the emergency evacuation position. After an appropriate amount of time a property check will happen and if no damage is sighted the children will
return to classrooms and carry on.
If there is damage, children will stay on the field or move to a safe undamaged area of the school.
there is a loss of power and you cannot contact us please feel assured
that your children will be well supervised, cared for and will be on the field
waiting for you. When you collect your child please inform the
teacher that you are taking your child home so that we can record the
whereabouts of each child. We politely ask that you leave the school grounds quickly.
The website is the main information source so please check regularly.
We know that this procedure works and we regularly practice it so that we all know what to do. The safety and wellbeing of your children is of primary importance to us and we do this well. In fact, your children's safety is our highest priority!
