Reporting and Managing School Incidents (including emergencies)

Step 6 — Analyse and learn

The Department’s Security and Emergency Management Division will undertake regular data analysis and reporting and share this with Regions.

Incident data analysis includes the monitoring, interrogating and acting on identified trends.

Data informs policy and program support of schools. Analysing data fulfils three core objectives, the purpose is to:

  • understand what happened
  • understand why an incident happened
  • inform what can be done to produce better outcomes for student and staff health, safety and wellbeing in the future

Refer to the comprehensive Schools Incident Management System Policy and Guidelines for full details on the whole-of-Department approach to managing incidents.
