COMMUNITY EMERGENCY PLAN
SKIDBY PARISH COUNCIL EMERGENCY PLAN
Skidby Parish Council has produced this document to provide a ‘catalogue’ of information and procedures, with handy points of reference which may be consulted both at the beginning of and at any time during the course of a major incident.
This document is issued to key individuals within the Parish of Skidby to assist in the recovery from such incidents in the minimum amount of time, with minimum disruption and at minimum cost.
The material contained in this document has been culled from a variety of sources and contributions as to future amendments and additions would be welcome. These should be directed to the Clerk of Skidby Parish Council.
It is important that this document is seen solely as an Aide Memoire and not as a ‘catch all’ compendium. It is a source of considerable assistance which can help you respond to any major incident.
Skidby Parish Council
The initial response to a major incident should be provided by the Police, Fire and Ambulance services who will call for support and assistance from East Riding of Yorkshire Council as appropriate.
However, the flooding in June 2007 showed the need for Skidby Parish to have procedures in place for supporting the community, working in co-ordination with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the emergency services in the event of any major incident.
We should be able to act faster than many of the responding organisations, as we have local knowledge contained within this Plan that could prove invaluable during the response to a major incident.
This means that anyone with a copy of this Plan can pick it up and use it. Even people new to the area will have a full knowledge of where to go for resources.
Our aim has been to plan properly for foreseeable circumstances and learn lessons from previous incidents whilst adopting a rational and logical decision making process that will make our plan work. Skidby Parish Council will monitor and evaluate this Plan. If it is not current or it is flawed we will rewrite it.

Skidby Parish Council owns this Plan and its contents and it is their responsibility to ensure it is accurate and up to date. Skidby Parish Council will review this plan at least annually.

Skidby CE Primary School
The overall aim of this policy is to ensure the children’s safety and wellbeing should there be cause to evacuate the school premises in the event of an emergency situation. If the premises need to be evacuated, the following will happen:
There will be 5 rings of the school bell giving a warning to all staff that the school needs to be evacuated.
TEACHERS & TA’s
The class teacher and the TA should complete a role call of all of the children at school that day and line up the children as quickly and calmly as possible.
The teacher and TA will then calmly walk their children to the school gate (the first teacher to the gate will need to unlock) and walk directly to Skidby Village Hall to get the children to a safe place until any situation can be resolved.
HEAD OF SCHOOL / SCHOOL BUSINESS MANAGER
If a threat to the safety of the children is encountered, the SBM (Mrs Grady) will sound the alarm 5 times to indicate the school must be evacuated.
The SBM will then dial 999 if appropriate.
The SBM will contact Peter Roustoby (chair) 07929 006997
The SMB will then join the rest of the school to walk to the Skidby Village Hall, taking the evacuation pack with all the relevant parent and LEA contact numbers.
Under no circumstances should the children be advised if there is a potential threat to their safety, the children should be kept calm at all times.
