Managing Health & Safety in Schools


Designed primarily for Heads and School Business Managers who are new to the role, this course provides those with safety management responsibilities in school environments with a clear understanding of their responsibilities and how to design sensible and risk proportionate safety management systems whilst avoiding the pitfalls of health and safety myths and risk aversion.


The course is supported by PowerPoint slides and includes a number of practical sessions throughout the morning. There is ample opportunity to ask questions throughout the session and the formal training is followed by a working lunch and the opportunity to discuss safety matters on a 1:1 basis with the trainer.

Arrive from 08:45 (tea, coffee & biscuits on arrival) for a 09:00 prompt start. Lunch will be served at about 12:30 until 13:30.


By the end of the course you will feel confident to:

  • Lead H&S management in your school.
  • Understand the benefits of effective H&S management.
  • Understand the principles behind safety management systems.
  • Understand risk assessment and how to implement it in your workplace.
  • Be clear about your responsibilities as a manager.
  • Tackle risk aversity and ensure a sensible risk management approach.

In addition the course offers the opportunity to share good practice and seek further advice and clarification on areas of interest or concern within your establishments.
