This manual is one that all schools will hope they never have to use. Indeed, many schools may
never have to deal with a situation that might be classified as a “critical incident”. However, experience indicates that in The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust it is likely that at
least one very serious or critical incident will take place during the course of any one year that
may involve one or more schools.
The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust is committed to building a national family of schools, “Where children believe they can, because teachers know they can”. Central to the ambition of rapid improvement in outcomes for all children is the effective management of risk such that teachers, leadership teams and school staff can concentrate on education.
The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust (TEFAT) has a duty to assess, prevent and control any risks from harmful bacteria, such as legionella, and to implement suitable precautions to ensure the health and safety of staff, pupils and the school community.
