Fire & Security for Schools

Fire and security is one area where schools have to take very seriously. With up-to 20 pupils per teacher in the UK, protecting life in schools is paramount.

Fire Protection for Schools

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) fire legislation has become simplified. The following should be considered in UK schools.

You will need to:

  • ensure procedures are in place to reduce the likelihood of fire
  • maintain fire detection and alarm systems
  • ensure staff and pupils are familiar with emergency evacuation procedures
 

It is important that:

  • fire risk assessments are kept up to date
  • fire precautions remain current and adequate (they should be reviewed in detail when significant alterations are made to a school’s premises)
