Risk Assessment
At Trinity Christian School, we continually look for ways to reduce and minimise any risks to children, parents, staff and visitors at the school, and strive to make the environment as safe as possible.
The School has a legal obligation to assess any significant risks and record these in writing. Additionally, comprehensive risk assessment is a method of preventing accidents or injury, by considering what measures we need to put in place, in advance, to reduce the risk of harm.
All members of staff are responsible for taking reasonable care of their own safety, together with that of the pupils and visitors to the school. Staff members are also responsible for adhering to the risk assessments in place for their areas of work, whilst carrying out their day-to-day duties. Staff will be made aware of the risk assessments which affect their areas of work as part of their induction to the school.
