Special Schools & Colleges: Factors to Consider in Your Risk Assessment for Wider Reopening

We know that special schools and colleges have been working around the clock to review and digest all of the latest guidance documents, and to implement measures that will enable more of their staff and pupils to return safely in the coming weeks and months.

We’ll be distributing a free template risk assessment covering all of the key points following the webinar, and both Michelle and her Risk Services Co-Director Adam Webb, will be available to answer any questions you send in during the presentation.

We hope you can join us in what promises to help you in the task of implementing the government guidance documents and ensuring that your risk assessment is suitable and sufficient.
