Coventry City Council is committed to achieving and maintaining the highest possible standards of health, safety and welfare for all employees, pupils and young people, their families and other persons affected by our work activities.
The documents and procedures on the attached links form the corporate safety management system and are based on the requirements of the Council's Health and Safety Policy. Governing bodies, head teachers, managers and staff have key roles to play in achieving and maintaining high standards of health and safety performance and are required to comply with the requirements of the safety management system.
Coventry City Council actively promotes and endorses a sensible and proportionate approach to health and safety in schools, striking the right balance, so that the real risks are managed and learning opportunities are experienced to the full. For further information on what sensible risk management means, please visit the HSE website.
