Health and Safety Self Assessments

The School Health and Safety Self-Assessment 2018-19 is now live.

Following feedback from a number of maintained and voluntary-controlled schools that this time of year is preferable for the schools self-assessment process to take place, we have endeavoured to meet this timescale and are pleased to say that the process is now live. The self-assessment process is mandatory for all maintained and voluntary-controlled schools. Please note is not mandatory for aided schools or academies (though a number do take part from a best-practice point of view) though aided schools and academies may take part if they wish, in which case a cost of £97.90 will be incurred. For aided schools or academies that wish to take part, please contact to arrange this.

The process can be accessed by either clicking on the following link, or copying the URL and pasting it into your browser (please see additional guidance below also):

Once the page has loaded (it can take a few seconds to do so) please click on the blue ‘Services’ button. A page will appear with a list of electronic forms in alphabetical order. The form you need is under “S” and is entitled, “Schools Self-Assessment 2018-19”. Please click on this wording and the form will launch, though it may take a few seconds to do so. Please do take the time to read the introduction before you begin populating the form.

We anticipate that it may take approximately 45 minutes to complete the assessment, and you can save the form in the event that you do not have time to complete all in one fell swoop. If you choose to ‘save’ the form to return to it later, you will receive an automated email from the system with a link that takes you straight back into the form when you are next able to continue. Please note that we do not have access to your forms, so if you do decide to save and continue later, you will need to retrieve the automated email from your inbox in order to access the form again.

The deadline for completion is 20th December. If you encounter any problems, or anticipate that you will not be able to meet this deadline, please contact
