Developing a Critical Incident Response Plan (Post Primary)

This workshop is aimed at  the Principal Teacher, Guidance Counsellor and/or members of the Schools Critical Incident Management Team or Student Support Team

Aim of the workshop:

  • To consider appropriate responses in sample cases which have occurred in Irish primary schools and to share learnings and good practice from experiences of previous incidents.
  • To outline four steps in developing a critical incident response plan
Participants will have the opportunity to:
  • To identify protective structures and practices in schools
  • To share ideas on the promotion of a caring ethos of physical and psychological safety in a school which can lessen the impact of a critical incident, should it arise
  • Review a NEPS template to generate a critical incident management policy appropriate to the needs of a post-primary school community.
  • Review new 2016/17 NEPS guidelines and practical resources to see how these could provide welcome support at a time of great stress and challenge. (Please bring a school copy of ‘Responding to Critical Incidents – NEPS Guidelines and Resource Materials for Schools)
  • Leave the workshop with a clear plan of the steps they need to take in order that their school will be in a strong position to deal with the significant challenges which a critical incident may bring in both the short- and long-term
