Critical incident management

November 27, 2018




Why should you attend?

Schools are often required to act at short notice to a diverse range of challenges and crises. Managing this demands experience and effective teamwork from SLT/SMT and can be taxing. At the other end of the scale, schools are likely to be faced with major events which could impact on the whole school, requiring a more complicated and sophisticated response.

This session will equip delegates with advice and strategies to navigate these situations effectively and successfully.

Programme outline:

  • What current risks are we likely to face in our schools?
  • Common school crises and how best to manage them
  • How to train staff to be more proactive in diverting or managing crises.
