Prepare instructions to deal with any accidents in school?
Good preparation is the key to prevent accidents at school and on the school bus. However, despite the best intentions and training, accidents still occasionally happen. Schools are generally safe and well-supervised places, and according to the Ontario School Bus Safety Guide, a child on the school bus is 16 times less likely to have an accident than when riding in the family car. All schools will have a policy on dealing with accidents. Staff should be familiar with this and should participate in training to deal with emergencies. It is important that the staff member should remain calm in an emergency as the children will take their cue from her.
