Health & Safety Evacuation Procedures @ Bangkok Prep!

Dear Parents,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to you today to clarify the procedures to follow in the event of hearing the evacuation alarm while onsite outside of normal school hours. As a result of a recent false alarm I would like to re-share our procedures.

If you happen to be onsite outside of school hours for any reason and hear the evacuation alarm, it is imperative that you make your way to the designated Main Assembly Point. For Primary, this location is the Tennis Courts, and for Secondary, it is the far side of the main Astro turf.

Upon hearing an evacuation alarm (a constant ringing of a bell), please be aware that no one will be permitted to enter the school premises. Instead, everyone must wait patiently outside any of the school entrances until the alarm stops and the all clear is given. Once the alarm has stopped, it is crucial to remain calm and await further instructions such as the “all clear” signal has been given from the relevant Senior Leader onsite. Please note, this also include our ‘Pitch Gate’ between Primary and Secondary. Staff, parents and children will not be permitted through this gate while an alarm is being sounded or the ‘All Clear” has not been given.

I want to reassure you that our school has conducted both planned and false alarm drills exceptionally well in the past. We conduct regular practices every term, which also include lockdown drills (a constant siren sound). Each practice session allows us to improve our procedures and enhance our preparedness for any emergency situation that may arise.

I would also like to kindly remind you of the importance of wearing your ID lanyard at all times while on the school premises. This is crucial for the safety and security of our school community. It is essential that all parents wear their ID lanyard visibly at all times during their visit to the school. Your ID lanyard serves as a form of identification and helps us maintain a secure environment for everyone. We kindly ask for your assistance in reminding others who may forget to wear their ID lanyard.

In the event that you forget your ID lanyard, please ensure to obtain a temporary visitor’s pass at either of the main security desks before entering the Primary or Secondary sites. This temporary pass will help everyone identify you as an authorized visitor while you are onsite. I would like to emphasize that no adult should be on either the Primary or Secondary sites without displaying a valid ID. This policy is in place to safeguard the well-being of all individuals in our school community.

Your support and understanding in adhering to these safety protocols are greatly appreciated. By following these procedures, we can ensure the safety and well-being of everyone in our school community. Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to maintaining a safe environment for all. Should you have any questions or require further clarification, please do not hesitate on contacting me. 

 

Kind regards

Brad Owen
