SCC H&S policies and related responsibilities

The documents on this page are the main Suffolk County Council Health and Safety policy made up of:

Policy statement – maintained schools can display this as their own policy statement.

– Organisation – responsibilities related to role.

– Arrangements – how we manage the risks and key management statements on a range of topics. Another document outlines the responsibilities of headteachers and senior managers and, for academies and VA schools, the Governing of Trust Bodies.

The SCC policy for staff and governing bodies at maintained schools regarding the health and safety of pupils on educational visits is outlined in the Educational Visits page.

You will find specific policies and guidance under the relevant pages – e.g. risk assessment guidance and templates at ‘Risk Assessment‘.

Let your Advisor know if there’s any other documents you’d like to see on this page, or how it can be made clearer – all suggestions are welcome!
