FACEDfE Advice on Legal Duties and Powers for Local Authorities, Head Teachers, Staff and Governing Bodies.

The Government is determined to reduce burdens on schools. One of their aims is to simplify health and safety requirements so that it is easier for schools to take pupils on trips, removing paperwork and taking steps to reduce teacher’s fears of legal action. It covers activities that take place on or off school premises, including school trips. The new document is considerably shorter than the guidance documents it replaces including Health and Safety of Pupils on Educational Visits (HASPEV 1998).
