Supporting practical science, D&T and art in schools and colleges
CLEAPSS membership enables employers to discharge their responsibilities under the Health & Safety at Work Act and subsequent regulations. These require employers to protect their employees by, for example, providing safe working conditions, information, training for health & safety, & (model) risk assessments for activities (required under a range of regulations, including COSHH).
CLEAPSS advice and documentation is recognised by the Health & Safety Executive & the Department for Education as the definitive basis for safe practice in practical work in schools & colleges.
The Local Authority currently purchases, on a financial year basis, the following blanket licence for CLEAPPS which applies across all schools and academies. Academies will be invoiced on a 5/12 and 7/12 basis based on numbers on roll (as of October School Census) and a small handling fee will be applied for the administration of the transaction. For any school converting to academy status within the financial year period, a charge will be applied in accordance with the conversion date.
