Fire training in schools should cover a full range of issues. This includes fire extinguishers, fire drills, hazard spotting and also plans for all school activities.

Schools should have fire evacuation plans for the following times: Normal school hours, breakfast club and also after school clubs. In addition there should be plans for activities such as school plays, parents evening and school fetes. There must also be plans if the school is hired by third parties and these should be shared with these persons. Finally, there should be a procedure when there is inclement weather. Children may be in different parts of the building and registers in different places!

Many schools adopt a roll call accounting method. This is ideal for schools who keep a regular register of pupils throughout the day. However, there should also be a sweep of the common areas. Furthermore a procedure for children who are late and en route to their classes may be useful. As well as accounting for children it is important to account for teachers so a separate register should also be used.

Breakfast clubs and after school activities also need fire procedures. There are usually a lot less children in the school during these periods. However there is also a lot less staff to manage persons in the building. It is important that parts of the school building are restricted during these times and that children are supervised by adults at all times.

Accounting for persons during school plays, parents evening and fetes will be done differently. An ideal procedure is a sweep system since there will not be an accurate list of persons in the premises. All staff must know there  roles for each of the above fire plans.

Fire training in schools programmes

Our team offer fire training in schools and can provide this during regular school days, on inset training days and also twilight sessions. The programme is an accredited course and any number of persons can attend our courses for the same fee. We can also include a live fire training session but do limit the numbers of this part of the course to twenty persons for safety reasons.

The course programme is three hours long but can be shortened and also adapted to include your school fire plans.

Our school fire training Essex programmes can be adapted to include your school fire safety plans. We recognise that all schools are different, so you will have individual plans in an emergency. In addition, many schools hire their facilities to other organisations. They will therefore need plans for all types of events. Since our courses include these issues, we can provide the tools to meet your legal duties.

As an approved fire training centre, we provide accredited fire training schools courses. Our course follows a base syllabus so if we include your fire plans, your fire training will still have approved status. This means that all persons on the course will get a certificate of attendance and on line course materials.

This course is based on government guidance, British Standards recommendations and fire service advice. The government booklet for educational premises looks at all types of teaching premises. We have produced versions of the school training course to suit nurseries, primary and secondary schools and also colleges!

Staff school training can be difficult to arrange during your normal working day, so we offer these options:

  • Inset days –  Since these are very popular you must book a few months in advance to get your preferred date.
  • Twilight session – We can provide after school day courses and also adapt the course to suit your timescales.
  • Multi sessions in a school day. Our team can also provide small mini sessions during your school day  if inset and twilight courses are not convenient.

How to book your course

You can book a course in Essex by either calling 01206 549589 or sending us an email. Ask for your preferred dates and we will give you our availability. We do have a few fire training teams so will probably be able to help you! You can add live fire extinguisher training if you want all staff to tackle small fires. However, because we using live fire, we do limit numbers of persons on practical sessions.
