ICE Cats

‘ICE CATS’ Stands for “In Case of Emergency, Children, Adults, Teacher Safety” and is designed to move classes of up to 30 children, quickly, quietly and safely in a child friendly way, in worst case scenario situations i.e weapons in school or possible terrorist threats. Ms Carter and her team, aim to make the lesson fun, informative and age appropriate with the correct training practised by police, armed forces and security industry.

All staff were trained by Jo Carter on our first INSET day. She has since been into school and delivered workshops with our children. Our children are trained on the different hand signals used and we have incorporated these into our everyday school routine.
