Health and safety checklist for classrooms

School premises are a valuable resource for local communities and are increasingly being used for extended services.
Health and safety in a school is about taking a sensible and proportionate approach to ensure the premises provide a healthy and safe place for all who use them, including the school workforce, visitors and pupils.
Because written risk assessments are not required for every classroom activity, this checklist is being made available for use as required. It is not mandatory, but is intended as a helpful tool. Schools may choose other ways to comply with health and safety legislation and ensure staff and children are safe.

Most incidents that happen in schools or on school trips do not need to be reported.
