“SAFE”: Manor House School in Bookham has been praised for its safety standards
Manor House School in Manor House Lane has been bestowed the accolade by the body following a visit last month.
The SafetyMARK 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, visitors and contractors.
After a rigorous independent audit the school demonstrated that it has first-class levels of safety management and compliance and, in doing so, achieved the SafetyMARK award for excellence.
Stuart Letley of SafetyMARK, said: “Manor House School has a really positive attitude with regard to health and safety and it is clear to see safety is taken extremely seriously and it is very well managed.
“The staff have established a robust health and safety system and culture that is amongst the best in the country.”
Head teacher Zara Axton added: “We are thrilled to be recognised with the SafetyMARK 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.
“Having achieved the SafetyMARK award, we can demonstrate our on-going commitment to maintaining excellence in the management of health and safety within our school.”
