. "As a result and to ensure the safety of that student and everyone else on site, we started the lockdown alarm so that nobody was moving around the academy. Established procedures were followed and additional support obtained to bring the situation to a speedy conclusion with no risk to anyone involved. "The period of lockdown lasted approximately 30 mins, after which everyone in school returned to their normal timetable. Contrary to some reports on social media no weapons were involved. Lockdown is a standard part of all schools’ practice (like practising for a fire alarm), and like a real fire, actual danger is rare in schools. "At JCA on this occasion all staff responded extremely professionally and the students’ behaviour was exemplary, in line with the lockdown rules that we have practised in our drills. In tutor time this afternoon, students will be given the opportunity to discuss the experience and provide feedback, in line with standard practice."
