Health and Safety for Schools

Safety in schools is essential but a school can be a complicated organisation to manage. In House has a proven track record based upon long-standing partnerships with schools to provide support in the areas of food safety and health and safety.

Working closely with those who are responsible for the day to day running of a school requires a breadth of knowledge and expertise to ensure that pupils, staff, visitors and contractors are adequately protected. In House is able to provide this expertise.

Food Safety

If your school provides a food service, you will have to comply with stringent food hygiene regulations. Poor food hygiene carries a heavy cost for your school – in terms of health, staff and reputation. So how can you be sure your food handling practices and procedures are up to scratch?

In House has a range of services to help you get them right, either by helping you set up your procedures from the start, or by checking that what you are currently doing is correct.

We can:

  • Development of food safety systems (your food safety manual), or reviewing existing ones
  • Audits and inspections
  • Training: On site and public courses, CIEH, HABC and bespoke courses
  • BIOSCANNING hygiene monitoring
  • Food sampling and allegation support
  • On-going support and advice


Throughout your service period we’re always on hand to answer any question about food safety or hygiene. Whether you have a minor query or a major crisis, we’re only a phone call or email away.

Health & Safety in Schools

The health and safety of everyone working within, visiting and living in a school site is paramount. It is understood that safety risks greatly increase where formal risk assessments have not been carried out sufficiently and safe systems of work not developed or followed. A school even of modest size is a highly complex and diverse operation involving a multitude of staff and contractors.

  • Development of Safety Management Systems
  • Risk assessments
  • Training – accredited or bespoke
  • Safety Support service
  • Accident investigations
  • Fire safety and fire risk assessments
