Business Continuity, Risk and Resilience
Critical Incident Support for Head Teachers and leadership teams dealing with significant incidents and Business Continuity Planning.
We want to support business continuity management by providing advice and support to your school. Business continuity management (BCM) is a process that helps manage risks to the smooth running of your school, ensuring continuity of critical functions in the event of a disruption and effective recovery afterwards.
Currently this service is funded by Schools Forum for the 2017/18 financial year. Due to this, there are currently no additional charges for this service for individual schools in Newcastle as the Schools Forum allocation fully covers staffing and resources in the Business Continuity Team to deliver this comprehensive service.
This service is delivered by a Major Incident Coordinator (MIC) from Newcastle City Council.
