HAREFIELD’s primary school has been given a seal of approval for high safety standards.
A SafetyMARK award for excellence has been presented to Harefield Junior, after a rigorous, independent audit as part of the National Safety Certification Scheme for Schools.
Stuart Letley, of SafetyMARK, said: “The staff have established a robust health and safety system and culture that is among the best in the country. We are delighted to recognise that fact with this prestigious award.”
The scheme aims to provide guidance for schools and to recognise and reward those schools that have gone the extra mile to create a safe environment for staff, pupils and visitors.
The school’s headteacher, Paul Dodd, added: “We are thrilled to be recognised with the award.
“We take the safety of our staff and pupils extremely seriously and it’s wonderful to have this recognition for all of our efforts to make our school such a safe place to work and study.”
