School Emergency Key Holder List Update

School Emergency Key Holder List Update

Published: 22 September 2022

Update 2


The School Organisation and Provision Team are carrying out the annual full update of the school emergency key holder list. In order for the Council to fulfil its duties under the Civil Contingency Act 2004 and to respond to any type of emergency involving a school, the Council's School Organisation and Provision Team keeps a school emergency key holder list for all Derby schools, including academies.

Key holder contact information held on this list is shared with the Council's Emergency Planning Team so that they can contact school key holders if it is ever necessary to open a school as a temporary rest centre for people needing temporary evacuation from their homes. The list is also used to contact key holders and head teachers should there be any other emergency, such as a major school fire or an accident on a school visit.

A secure (Egress) e-mail will be sent to the head teacher and school business manager or administrator of every school in Derby during the week beginning Monday 26 September. This will contain details of the information we currently hold for the school and a form which needs to be completed and returned by Friday 15 October.
