  • ensure there is zero tolerance to bullying

  • comply with the provisions of the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992
  • provide a smoke free environment
  • ensure a risk analysis management system (RAMS) is carried out where and when appropriate
  • seek approval for all overnight stays/camps attesting first to their compliance with (4) above
  • consult with the community every two years regarding the health programme being delivered to students
  • provide privacy of personal documentation held at the school
