UK Emergency Alert - Sun 23rd April 2023


As you may be aware, the national UK Emergency Alert test is due to take place on Sunday 23rd April 2023. This is a test of the system which will be deployed in case of future national emergencies. It involves an automatic notification to all mobile phones, on all networks, in the form of an alert sound.


Please be aware that the alert will sound even if a mobile phone is switched to silent


A number of our older pupils have mobiles phones.  We understand that the emergency alert test may be unsettling for some children.  To mitigate this we suggest that you speak to your child ahead of the planned test, so that they are aware of what the alarm is and that it is a practise.  


Alternatively, it is possible to disable the alarm on any phone.  Please see below for instructions on how to do this.


To turn off the alert on an android phone:

  • Go to settings
  • Type emergency in the search bar and emergency alert should appear as an option
  • Select emergency alerts
  • This should take you to a page titled either emergency alerts or broadcast settings
  • Click or tap on the blue toggle beside emergency alerts to switch the option off. It will turn grey, and the alert will be switched off.

To turn off the alert on an I-phone:

  • Open the settings app
  • Select notifications, a red square with a white bell
  • Scroll down the notifications screen to the bottom to find emergency alerts
  • Tap the toggles to turn the emergency alerts off. They will turn grey, and the alerts will be switched off.
