French schools are to hold three security drills a year, including one in which an alleged assailant enters their premises.
France’s education minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem and interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve has announced a series of measures to improve how French schools and children handle terror threats.
Students will be taught how to hide or to escape, depending on the situation and where they are.
All students aged 13 to 14 and class representatives will also receive basic training on life-saving measures. Ms Vallaud-Belkacem said, as of now, only 30% of students are trained.
For children aged two to six, no mention of an attack or danger should be made but children must be taught to hide and keep quiet through games, Ms Vallaud-Belkacem said.
