Welcome to the SchoolSHARE Newsletter for the Autumn Term.

Our first article explores the important subject of mental health and the impact of the pandemic on pupils as they get to grips with a new normality. We go on to cover the seasonal topic of snow and ice with a reminder of how to help protect your pupils and staff as the winter weather approaches. We also recap some key advice on fire safety and asbestos—two of the common health and safety topics schools ask us about.

In our regular ‘Learning by Example’ feature, we highlight three recent cases of injuries where schools were held accountable, and we end with details of our forthcoming IOSH Managing Safely courses, which are ideal for those managing health and safety in most schools.

In This Edition:

  • Pandemic recovery and mental health
  • Winter weather safety
  • Managing asbestos risk in schools
  • Fire safety and your school’s responsibilities
  • Learning by example
  • Upcoming training events
