Health and safety legislation places overall responsibility for health and safety with the employer; who this is varies with the type of school:
• For community schools, community special schools, voluntary controlled schools, maintained nursery schools and pupil referral units (PRUs), the employer is the Local Authority.
• For academies, free schools, and voluntary aided schools, the employer is usually the governing body or Board of Directors.
Working in partnership with schools the Health and Safety Service will provide your school with comprehensive training, advice, guidance and support in relation to duties imposed under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and associated regulations as well as British Standards.
In accordance with the Education Act 2002 (Section 5) the Government requires the local authority to make directions to maintained schools regarding health and safety of persons on school premises and taking part in school elsewhere. The combined package of training and support provides schools with the tools to enable them to satisfy those requirements. All follow best practice guidance from the Health and Safety Executive and Department for Education.
The service available has been streamlined following feedback and in line with Health and Safety Executive guidance around focusing on the significant risks. The service covers core elements to ensure both the employer, the Head teacher and the Governing Body remain compliant with their respective duties. This includes:
Coordination of School Lettings
Allowing clubs, groups and organisations to use your school premises is a great way to increase your revenue and develop links with the local community. The Service Support Team within Corporate Landlord providees a co-ordinated service for all school lettings to ensure that the use of schools’ accommodation outside of the normal school hours is maximised in order to increase revenue and develop these links with the local community.
School Performance Data - Research and Assessment Team
Schools responsibilities regarding the transparent and effective use of performance data continue to increase significantly. It is essential that schools can access key data and information that is accurate, timely, dependable and supports the challenge of managing school improvement. The service provided by the Research and Assessment Team will assist you with the management of your data and the completion of statutory returns as well as providing you with the information and reports that you need to effectively evaluate your school's performance.
