A prestigious independent girls’ school located in Greater Manchester.


A Bursar wanted to complete the on-going SLT analysis and consultation on lockdown, synthesising this into a focused procedure.

AI Schools were approached to help move beyond “what if” discussions and to identify and document the most effective procedure for the school.


The integrated lockdown package was selected as it offered the Bursar a “wing-to-wing” security analysis of likely threats and how the SLT should approach lockdown in reacting to a real incident.


Having completed a remote analysis of existing documentation, a single day on site was agreed which achieved:


  • Site Security Walk through.

  • Lockdown procedure with guidance on effective signalling across campus/ immediate staff actions and likely on-site/ off-site refuges.

  • Professional Development Training to SLT in managing critical incidents.

  • Tabletop exercise based on armed intruder scenario.

  • Verbal de-brief covering security SWOT analysis

  • Written report


A new lockdown procedure was signed-off by the SLT on the day and a programme of rolling out to staff began the following week.


“Thank you for your support and guidance which highlighted to me  that we had been guilty of over-thinking issues, which confused us and created a log jam we couldn’t get beyond”.
