When disaster strikes a school it can be a particularly time consuming process to recover essential services as quickly as possible. Schools can come under intense scrutiny from the media, parents and the wider public during an incident. It can be an extremely stressful time with negative media attention for failing to prepare, increased recovery times impacting on pupil’s education and angry parents demanding answers.
- One in eight schools suffers a serious arson attack with nearly a third of all fires starting during term time.
- It is estimated that the education of 90,000 children is disrupted by fire in schools each year.
- According to the Environment Agency, the national flood risk assessment identified that one in 14 businesses including schools, are at risk of flooding
These alarming figures highlight the frequency of risks that a school is vulnerable to. Planning now before disaster strikes should be seen as a top priority. Whilst it is necessary to have in place incident management plans to safeguard those in the schools care, this is only half the story.
