SafetyMARK - Recognising Safety Excellence in Schools

These are testimonials from users of the SafetyMARK service.

"The introduction of SafetyMARK has provided peace of mind and a clear action plan, ensuring continual improvements and goals within the school. Receiving recognition for what we have achieved in health and safety has been excellent for King's. We would unreservedly recommend In House's service."

Mark Hart, Operations Director, King's School, Ely.

"I have had a long hard look through the report you sent as has Gary Kinch, my site manager and, even going back to it a few weeks later, we feel it really does reflect our ethos of a commitment to our children, staff and visitors’ health and safety.

The report is very detailed but easy to read and use. We like the splitting of the report into the different sections (management, personal welfare and premises). It enables us to take any strand and look in detail about what it means for us as a school and for those staff that have direct involvement in particular aspects that affect them.

It has enabled the health and safety governor to have something to refer to, and should we be inspected in the near future, she will take it to her meeting with the inspector, which she is now happy to schedule – this is good as before she would have been very worried about the possibility of this happening. The report has given her something to refer to, as well as the confidence to tell people we are doing things well.

I will also be commending SafetyMARK as a process, whether or not one attains the award!"

Peter Howard, Headteacher, Fairisle Junior School

“We are delighted to be recognised with the SafetyMARK award following our independent health and safety audit. Having achieved the certification, we can now visibly demonstrate our on-going commitment to maintaining excellence in the management of health and safety within our school.”

Nigel Helliwell, Headmaster at St Faith’s School

“Manor House found that it was an easy decision to take to apply for the SafetyMark award as it encapsulates all that you would aim for within a school’s health and safety provision. The support is so helpful and proactive that real progress is actually achieved. An unexpected plus is the reassurance that our team is working well and certainly on the right route!”

Val Allcott, Bursar - Manor House School

"Having joined the SafetyMARK scheme I was looking forward to receiving a clear plan to help the school enhance our safety strategy, which we have always taken seriously. My expectations were exceeded when I received the report as I was struck by the clarity of the layout that manages to make such a comprehensive report easy to read and use. Our insurance risk surveyor recently carried out an inspection of the school and he said that the audit ticked every box. He could see, at a glance, all the good things that we were already doing and that we had a clear plan for the things where enhancements were still needed. The whole process has been very reassuring."

Tim Brand, Bursar - Orley Farm School

"Could you please pass on a big thank you to Justin who completed our SafetyMARK audit at Highfield. We found Justin very professional and the comments he made were very helpful."

Tony Meredith, Facilities Manager - Highfield Primary School
