Take a look at example templates from schools

Hartest Church of England (CofE) Primary School in Suffolk has a template for a personal emergency evacuation plan (PEEP) on page 19 of its health and safety policy.

It has sections for setting out:

  • How the individual will be alerted to an emergency evacuation
  • The names of people designated to give assistance in an emergency
  • The methods of assistance that will be used
  • Any equipment provided
  • The evacuation procedure
  • Safe routes

St Bede's Catholic Primary School in Redbridge has a managed fire plan (under 'Premises Policies') which includes a template for a PEEP on page 10. The form includes a checklist to note key information, including time/days covered by the plan, and then different questionnaires for pupils with:

  • Mobility impairment
  • Visual impairment
  • Hearing impairment

The template ends with a list of staff and responsibilities (page 14).
