Abstract

This guide covers the legal context for health and safety management in schools and suggests a strategic approach which can be used by any educational organisation. It also suggests a whole school approach to ‘teaching safely’ – ensuring that facilities and activities are suitably safe and ‘teaching safety’ – preparing children for adult life by teaching them to understand and manage risk.
