The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has launched its School Safe programme.

The scheme reviews the systems that schools and academies have in place to guarantee that dangers to the safety of pupils, staff and parents are managed in an effective and balanced way.

Schools participating in the scheme will be reviewed on five key challenges: safe methods of teaching, teaching safety, children’s safety risks away from the classroom and physical dangers (such as asbestos).

David Rushton, head of education and leisure at RoSPA, said: ”Many schools and academies have recently assumed responsibility for health and safety for the first time and we’re keen that head teachers, governors and staff receive practical help and advice as well recognition for good practice.”

Mr Rushton explained that the programme is unique and assesses the school’s ability to “teach safely”.

He added that he hopes the help offered by the initiative will be beneficial to both schools and academies. ADNFCR-2754-ID-801635699-ADNFCR
