Health & Safety / First Aid Policy

Health and Safety First Aid

Tornedale is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its pupils and staff.

We recognise the need for all members of staff to work together to provide and maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone in our school – children, staff and visitors.

The Headteacher is responsible for the dissemination of all information and procedure for health and safety issued by the LEA.

Each member of staff has a personal responsibility to ensure that, as far as possible, she/he promotes and maintains:

  • His/her own health and safety at work
  • The health and safety of the children
  • The health and safety of colleagues
  • The health and safety of members of the public in school or those affected by the work of the school

We believe the safety of the children to be paramount and aim to reduce the risks to the minimum by:

  • Being vigilant in our supervision of children
  • Insisting on the adherence to certain rules within the school
  • Expecting high standards of behaviour
  • Developing sensible attitudes in the children
  • Teaching children to have care and consideration for others.
