Fire Management and Safety
A fire area will be established on site. This will be a safe distance from other structures and will have clear exit routes.
A fire kit, fire blanket and water will be kept in the fire area near the fire.
All staff will be made aware of this place. Seating will be arranged a minimum 1.5 meters from the fire.
Pupils will be involved in the building process to gain ownership and understanding of the fire area.
Safety rules and procedures will be shared with and rehearsed by staff and pupils before the fire is lit.
This process may be repeated for several weeks before the pupils are ready for the fire to be lit. Staff will light and extinguish the fire.
Cooking activities may take place during the fire sessions. Any food cooked on site will be left to cool at an adequate temperature in a clean environment before allowing children to eat.
