Guidance on Fire Drill

When the fire bell rings, please observe the following procedure:

  • Leave the work area using the nearest exit.
  • Encourage the children to move quietly and without panic.
  • Assemble the children in class lines at the back of the playground under the Fire Assembly Point notices.
  • Check that all the children and any helpers in your class are out of the building using the register handed to you by our Admin Support.
  • Wait quietly until you are asked to return to the building.

On a regular basis, please talk about the following fire drill procedures with your class:

  • Stress that we leave by the nearest, safe exit and we shouldn’t return to the classroom or cloakroom to collect belongings.
  • Discuss what children are to do if they hear the fire alarm when they are in different areas, e.g. the hall or toilets.
  • Familiarise yourself with the location of fire doors, fire call points and fire extinguishers.
