Emergency planning, support and advice for education establishments (EASEE)
Incidents and emergencies can occur at any time. Our education settings and young people are not immune from such incidents and often the impact of an incident can have far reaching effects in the wider community. For this reason we have utilised the Emergency Advice and Support for Educational Establishments (EASEE) guidance and produced: school emergency and business continuity plan templates and used EASEE guidance material to plan for a range of critical incidents.
This includes emergency school lockdown procedure guidance and bomb and suspicious package information.
EASEE guidance is available from the CSW resilience team sub-regional website.
