Our school has been identified as a school at increased risk of bushfire. Therefore, a comprehensive Bushfire Management Plan has been written to ensure the health, safety and welfare of students, staff and visitors. This plan has been written collaboratively by the RFS, Workplace Health and Safety Directorate and the school.
The Plan deals with two types of occurrences.
- A fire danger rating of concern is forecast (catastrophic, extreme or severe) on the afternoon prior to a school day.
- The school is impacted by a local bushfire threat when the students are at school.
The school will only receive notification of a concerning fire danger rating after school hours the day before the forecast is issued and we will contact the Scarborough community as soon as we are notified. To assist the school in contacting all parents, please ensure that you have provided the school with up-to-date mobile and home telephone numbers and let us know immediately if your contact details change.
We would like to assure all of our parents that our school is prepared for the event of a bushfire emergency and that your child will be safe and secure in the care of the staff of Scarborough Public School.
If you have any questions of concerns, please contact us.
