What is a lockdown?
A school lockdown confines all staff and students to the classroom due to a perceived or real threat; isolation of staff and students inside the school limits exposure to risk to outside contaminants: people, exposures or situations. The practice of lockdown drills acclimates both staff and students to the process and probability, and ultimately avoids unnecessary responses.
Surrey School has two types of lockdowns:
1. Intruder lockdown- Threatening situation
2. Non-violent lockdown- Non-threatening situationDo to the sensitivity of lockdowns and the safety of your child, lockdown procedures are not disclosed.
