The LA recognises the important part that governors play in the strategic running of schools. Governing boards, having control of school premises, must take reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of the school environment, buildings and equipment, ensuring that adequate arrangements are in place in line with policies and procedures.
The school governor's role in health and safety session has been designed to ensure governors have sufficient knowledge and a reasonable overview of current health and safety requirements in schools, to effectively support the Head teacher and senior leadership team.
To ensure your governing board is kept up to date with current health and safety legislation and standards in schools, it is strongly recommended that the chair and/or named governor with health and safety responsibility attends one of these important sessions.
