Photocopiable Resources for Primary Schools

Everyday Safety in Primary and Nursery Schools

It is never easy running a safe, orderly school when it is full of young children. Even with the best-behaved group of children there is always the potential for accidents. This is a practical and easy to understand guide to help headteachers and their staff deal with issues of everyday safety that so often worry those who work in schools. It provides a straightforward introduction to safety, but acknowledges that things still do sometimes go wrong – and shows how to deal with a variety of emergencies:

• Written with day-to-day school safety in mind • Includes practical, photocopiable sections • Gives material designed for meetings, training and planning sessions

It discusses issues such as: how to assess risk; how to develop and implement a school safety plan; how to deal with emergencies effectively. The author translates and interprets potentially complicated official documents that primary school teachers may have difficulty interpreting. An essential purchase for every primary school.
