    What Is the Purpose of a School Lockdown Drill?

    The purpose of a school lockdown drill is to protect the children and adults in the building from a potential emergency such as the presence of a school shooter.

    As with fire drills and other safety programs, the hope is to acclimate students and teachers to a procedure that they will be able to follow quickly, effectively, and safely.

    How Are Lockdown Drills Designed and Implemented?

    Lockdown drills are different from evacuation drills. Evacuation drills are designed to prepare students, teachers, administrators, and other people in the school to leave the building quickly and in a pre-planned and organized fashion in the event of danger such as a bomb threat, when conditions outside the building are safer than the conditions inside the building. In a lockdown drill, students are to clear the halls and report to the nearest available classroom where they are to hide and stay as silent as possible.

    These drills are usually designed and implemented with input and assistance from local law enforcement officials. Ideally, these drills should be conducted several times a year at different times of the day and without pre-announcement (during lunchtime or recess, during classes, or during drop-off or dismissal, for example), to give students and staff the opportunity to practice what to do in different scenarios.

    What Kinds of Procedures Are Followed During a Lockdown Drill?

     Following is the procedures for lockdown drills:

    • Doors to classrooms are closed and locked.
    • Students are moved to the safest part of the room, away from windows and doors, to the interior walls.
    • Everyone drops to the floor or out of the line of vision from the door.
    • Window shades are pulled down.
    • Any windows in doors are covered (to prevent an intruder from seeing into the room).
    • Classroom lights are turned off.

    A fire drill is a method of practicing how a building would be evacuated in the event of a fire or other emergency. Usually, the building’s existing fire alarm system is activated and the building is evacuated as if the emergency had occurred.


    Upon detecting a fire, remain COOL, CALM, and press a fire alarm button.
    Immediately evacuate any students from the threat
    Quickly and clearly explain the situation to a School Support staff member
    That School Support staff member shall call the Property Management Company and/or 119 for any necessary assistance.
    Upon hearing the alarm, all students and adults shall immediately stop whatever activities they are involved in, and evacuate the building in a quiet and orderly manner.
    Close but do not lock classroom/office doors. It is not necessary to turn off lights or shut down computer systems (except for Finance & HR).
    Teachers are responsible for leading the evacuation of the class they are teaching, handing over the class to the homeroom teacher at the evacuation assembly point. ‘Sweepers’ are assigned to check that everyone has left their respective floor level, including checking the bathrooms, and report to the Principal.
    Students, teachers, staff and visitors shall assemble and line up in an orderly manner at the designated assembly point at the end of the sports field.
    Visitors shall be directed to the assembly point where the Property Management Officer / Receptionist shall check them against the visitor log.
    Homeroom teachers and department leaders will show their RED/GREEN card. Show GREEN if students / staff are present. Show RED if anybody is missing.
    The Head of Departments (CWB) + Coordinators (CWA) shall check with HR Teachers, and report any missing students to the Principals (with details) immediately.
    The Principal (Back up = CWB Principal) shall give the “all clear” signal to re-enter the school when appropriate.
    Under no circumstances shall anyone other than security guards and/or fire fighters re- enter the building until after the “all clear” signal.
