School and college safety
Advice and information
Safety plays an important role in schools and colleges. Ensuring pupil and student safety has been part of the ethical framework for decades. Schools also have legal responsibilities for safety and it is an integral part of the Ofsted framework.
In the midst of change, RoSPA has compiled the information on this website to help schools and colleges understand the importance of managing health and safety in a proportional and planned way. Our approach is that we should endeavour to make schools as safe as necessary, not as safe as possible. Download the Schools and Colleges Overview brochure.
