Keeping your school or academy safe and compliant with statutory regulations
Today’s school owners, leaders, trustees and governors have an extremely important job to fulfil, with the welfare and education of their pupils always at the forefront of their responsibilities. But this critical task can easily be overtaken by a plethora of legal requirements, policies and standards that schools and academies are obliged to adhere to. These compliance requirements are in many ways just as important, as they are there to ensure that our children, and all those using the school premises, are kept safe.
But compliance can be a complicated business, not least because regulatory standards are under constant review and because much of the work involves technical issues and requires specialist knowledge. You may even manage a multi-academy trust and have responsibility for numerous sites.
Managing your school’s estate includes ensuring you have an up-to-date health & safety policy, staff training procedures and proof of this training, a building condition survey to check the physical, mechanical and electrical state of your school buildings and land, crucial compliance documentation like your asbestos register, legionella risk assessment, electrical safety certificate, and fire and insurance policies. The list goes on!
