    Increase in School Numbers for the First Time in Five Years

    The year 2011 – 2012 was the first time since 2006 that the number of schools in England rose rather than fell.

However in 2011 – 2012 an increase of 41 schools was recorded.

    Don't Let Health & Safety Myths Stop Your School Trips

    We’ve all heard the stories of the traditional school trip disappearing under a pile of Health and Safety paperwork and threatened by an increasing fear of litigation. In a move to debunk the ‘school trip myth’, Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) recently brought out a common sense guide for schools, extolling the benefits of extra-curricular outings and reassuring teachers that, with a few sensible precautions, it needn’t be a health and safety minefield.

    This principle is enshrined...

    One of the first fines associated with the Health and Safety (Fees) Regulations 2012 Fees for Intervention (FFI) programme has gone to an individual rather than a company.

    As a Health and Safety inspector drove down the A419 on the 19th October last year, he witnessed what appeared to be dust rising from a building site, and because he had investigated a similar issue some months earlier, decided to stop to investigate what was causing it. It was found that workers...
