New safety and compliance courses from EduCare
We have launched three new courses to help schools understand their rights and responsibilities.
EduCare is committed to continuously improving and developing our portfolio of courses
The following new courses have recently been added to our course portfolio.
Schools have a responsibility under health and safety legislation to minimise risks to pupils, staff and visitors, and they have statutory powers to make rules about pupil behaviour to facilitate this.
Both searching and screening contribute to the safety of the school by enabling staff to identify and remove prohibited items such as weapons and alcohol. But schools have to follow and understand the law and also statutory guidance and this course can help.
If a school gives information about a child to someone who does not have defined responsibility for then there can be severe consequences and is a potential safeguarding issue.
For example, problems can occur when parents are separated and there is a difference of opinion on how the child should be educated.
So this course clarifies the legal definition of a parent, rights and responsibilities. Scenarios and certain situations are covered such as exam results and illnesses.
Schools have been organising and delivering successful educational visits and trips for many years. This course has been written in partnership with health and safety experts to help you develop risk assessments that are sensible and proportionate for the level of risk presented during the trip.
