Over 1300 school fires a year in England and Wales are attended by local authority Fire and Rescue Services. Around 60% of these are started deliberately. While the primary concern is for the safety of the users of school buildings, a fire can have a serious impact on children’s education due to disruption and loss of course work.
The short-term effects of loss of facilities and equipment can be calculated, but the longer-term effects of loss of coursework, disruption of classes and lowering of morale are much harder to quantify. It is clear that a major fire is likely to disrupt a child’s education for many months and could mean postponing tests and exams.
The Department for Children, Schools and Families says that a school’s objectives for primary and high school fire alarm protection should include:
- Minimising the effects of fire on the operation of the school (primarily, teaching)
- Limiting the effects of interruption to operation of the school
- Seeking to have the school operational within 24 hours; and
- Protecting the buildings.
