Emergency Procedures & Health and Safety


Emergencies can happen at any time. Our school is prepared and has a plan in place to respond to emergencies to minimise the effects to students and staff.

In the event of a fire or earthquake Kelson School will follow the procedures as recorded in their Earthquake and Emergency Procedures document. You can click on the “links & Downloads” at the bottom of this page to read or download the full document.

The emergency plan focuses on emergencies where school staff will need to take immediate, self-directed actions such as fire, earthquake and lockdown.
During or prior to the onset of other types of emergency, officials such as Police, Civil Defence, The Ministry of Education, or the Met Service will provide official advice and guidance
