Supporting Children Worried About Terrorism

It is important that we are proportionate in dealing with the potential terrorist threat, in particular when we are talking to children. Although there is a risk of being involved directly in an incident, the more likely risk is that a school trip will have their travel disrupted and parents of course will be worried. We take into account this risk as part of our off-site visit planning.


Advice from the Metropolitan Police is to "continue with your plans as usual. Please be vigilant, but be alert, not alarmed".

In a major event, we will keep parents informed and reassured via texts.
