It is critical that risks are managed, at the school level, in accordance with best practice. This helps to protect the population of the school, its assets, information and reputation. Each school should implement a common risk framework which is currently being defined by LEVNT. This will help to ensure all measures employed to reduce the risks are aligned with the mission of the school and based on a clear understanding of the risk they are intended to treat.
The major risk categories within a school are:
- Child Protection
- Human Resources
- Health and Safety
LEVNT can advise schools regarding the development and implementation of a risk framework. LEVNT staff can also directly assist schools with developing risk registers in collaboration with their school council. For more information please contact our office.
