Lockdown Procedures

Tithe Farm Primary School Lockdown Procedures


As part of a Central Bedfordshire directive we have a plan for "lockdowns".  Lockdown procedures are important and would be used in response to an internal or external incident which could be a threat to the safety of staff and children in the school. 


Lockdown procedures may be activated in response to any number of situations, these may be:


  1. A reported incident, disturbance in the local community
  2. An intruder on the site
  3. A warning being received regarding a local risk of air pollution (smoke plume, gas cloud etc)
  4. A major fire in the vicinity of the school
  5. The close proximity of a dangerous dog roaming close


In order to warn of these dangers we use our two-way radios.


In the event of an actual lockdown parents will be notified by a text message as soon as possible.
