Introduction

Health and Safety of the children is the second most important factor during consideration of school by parents. Spring field Primary School, health and safety policy is written in accordance with Act 1974 and was revised on 16th November, 2004. The Governing Body is responsible for monitoring and reviewing the Health and safety policy. It notifies LEA and the Health and Safety Executive of major accidents and dangerous occurrences. The Head teacher along with the Site supervisor is responsible for investigating, inspecting and maintaining equipments and school sites free from hazards. Every staff member has the right to identify health and safety risks and is responsible for discussing and informing them to the health and safety representatives of the school who in return are responsible for inspecting the situation and reporting it to the Head teacher. However the Governing Body of the school had to review the policy statement on annual basics or frequently as stated in the Health and Safety policy but this has not been done which is very irresponsible act as it needs to be monitored so as to run the policy smoothly. ...read more.

Middle

staff: pupil ratio in accordance with the LEA guidance. During my discussion with the Teaching Assistant regarding the health and Safety policy , I've learnt that before the outing takes place , the team leader visit the location of the proposed visit in advance and carries out a risk assessment of the activity. And without the consent of parents, pupils are not taken to the visit. Not only are staffs responsible for Health and safety issues but pupil are also taught to consider the importance of health and safety issues. For example when children are given scissors, the teacher whom I am working with always questions them about its proper usage .Apart from this I also remembered, during another activity which required children to count pebbles as indicted on the card children were questioned about throwing pebbles on the floor and on each other. This also teaches them consequences of their actions which I suppose is a part of the curriculum. ...read more.

Conclusion

This would result in more space for pupil to move around safely and enjoy their play time. School also does not take responsibility of the children who go home for their lunch. As during my work as a Dinner Supervisor in the school, we were not allowed to let children in the school before 12:50 pm. Therefore children who arrived earlier were forced to stay outside the school premises unless they are attending extra lessons e.g. computer, Urdu etc or have permission form their teacher. This made children wander around the streets. I think, school should do something about it, for example the simplest step is to let children in the school and second is to educate / inform parents about their children safety during lunch break. To conclude, the Springfield Primary School has both the pros and cons of the Health and Safety policy practice by them, in my opinion a lot could be done to improve where as I am also in favor what the school has done till now as it could have been worse. ...read more.
