Education & Schools

Who is responsible for first aid in schools? 

In schools, employers are responsible for the pupils, visitors (including contractors) and all staff, including the head teachers, teachers and non-teaching staff.

Depending on the type of school, who the employer is will be different:

For controlled, county and special arrangement schools the Local Education Authority (LEA) is the employer. This also includes pupil referral units.

For independent schools, the employer is the owner of the trustees.

For city technology colleges, voluntary-aided and non-maintained special schools the governing body is the employer. This is also the case for grant-maintained and grant-maintained special schools.

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HSWA), the employer is responsible for ensuring a health and safety policy is put in place at schools, including the arrangements both on and off site, the number of first aiders and the location of first aid boxes.
