Lockdown Procedure for 8 Year Olds?!
Ask a Question
So my son who has just turned 8 came home from school yesterday feeling worried an anxious. He proceeded to tell me that they had to learn a new procedure at school called 'Lockdown' which involved the children hiding under tables and covering themselves with chairs while the teachers hid in cupboards. The children were told this was in case a 'bad person' got into the school and they needed to protect themselves. My son and many other children in the class have said they now don't feel safe at school and don't understand why they needed to learn this. I myself am baffled that this is a thing and the parents weren't informed that they would be learning this! Has anyone else experienced a similar thing at their child's school or heard of it happening? It had never crossed my sons mind before yesterday that something could happen to him at school and now he doesn't feel safe there!
