Updated advice for schools conducting offsite visits

24 May 2017

On the 23rd May 2017, the threat level for international terrorism in the UK was increased to CRITICAL. This means an attack is expected imminently.

The general advice for Schools conducting off site visits is to continue as planned, but:

  • be especially vigilant (staff should be this anyway);
  • keep an eye on the news for any changes;
  • avoid any areas which the Police state to avoid;
  • ensure that you have a ‘Plan B’ in place for the day, if necessary;
  • continue to undertake due diligence and dynamic risk assessment.

For more information see the attached document, which contains:

  • the National Guidance document on ‘Visits and threats from terrorism’ - taken from www.oeapng.info;
  • the National Police Chiefs Council 'Run, Hide, Tell' Advice
  • some practical advice for leaders.
