Lockdown Procedures for Schools Guidance

Posted by LRF Manager

Dynamic lockdown is the ability to quickly restrict access and egress to a site or building (or part of) through physical measures in response to a threat, either external or internal. The aim of lockdown is to prevent people moving into danger areas and preventing or frustrating the attackers accessing a site (or part of).

Planning should include;

  • How to achieve effective full or partial lockdown
  • How to let people know what’s happening
  • Training your staff
  • STAY SAFE principles

The Lockdown Procedures for Schools Guidance document is based on the NaCTSO (National Counter Terrorism Security Office) Guidance Note 1/205 - Developing Dynamic Lockdown Procedures and should be read in conjunction with your School Emergency Plan.
