School Resilience Planning: A Practical Guide to Emergency Management and Business Continuity Management for Schools
Fires, flu pandemic, accidents and deaths – all these have affected British schools in the past and will do so again in the future – we just don’t know when or where. Schools need to build resilience to emergencies and be prepared to manage their consequences, both to ensure that a response is effective and also that the business of education continues as quickly and efficiently as possible. Whether the driver is the school’s duty of care to its charges or a Local Authority requiring its schools to prepare emergency response and business continuity plans, we can’t avoid the fact that teachers don’t join their profession to write them and so will be requiring assistance. With practical explanations and useful checklists, this guide provides a complete framework for planning, using the UK’s best practice approaches to Emergency Management and Business Continuity Management. It culminates with several template plans and exercises that can be used by school management for their own purposes. Particularly appropriate during a flu pandemic, this book will always be a useful tool for teachers who require a simple but effective guide to preparing for emergencies in their school.
