Schools are responsible for your child’s safety while they’re at school or on a school trip.
Contact the school if you’re worried about your child’s health and safety. If you’re still concerned, tell the local council or the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
When schools are responsible for health and safety
Schools are responsible for day-to-day health and safety whenever your child is in the care of school staff - this includes school trips and clubs.
What schools are responsible for
Every school has a health and safety policy. Ask the school if you want to read it. It should contain details of what the school is responsible for (eg school trips) as well as what they should do to look after your child.
