The dreaded chirp of my phone alarm goes off and for a minute I can’t quite figure out where I am…then I remember the early wake up call is for a very good reason…we’re off to the Houses of Parliament!
As everyone settles down into a new term, teachers are getting to grips with their new classes, parents are happily back into a routine and the children – well, it’s like they’ve never been away, but what lies ahead in the year to come?
We continue to add to our series of ‘top tips’ sheets to help Heads and other school leaders deal with the most difficult situations of staff ill health.
See what some of our clients say about us...
"Government of Jersey procured the services of North Yorkshire to complete a review of health and safety structure. The service and knowledge provided by North Yorkshire County Council from start to finish was fantastic. It was evident that Stuart Langston took time and put thought into providing a professional and knowledgeable team suitable to meet the needs of the project, as well as providing a format to the review that was clear and logical to get the best outcomes and recommendations for our local Government health and safety structure."

"As a new member of the teaching staff I recognise now the benefits of a school based breakfast club for the children in my reception/year one class. Especially for those children with additional needs. It provides a stable routine to the start of their day. The catering service staff provide a good healthy meal to ensure good learning, the tea cakes smell delicious as I make my way to my classroom."

"The service provided by the NYES Health and Safety team has been excellent. The support and advice gives us the confidence we are compliant with Health and Safety regulations and our pupils and staff are working in a safe location. As well as ensuring we are compliant, the advice they provide always gives an appreciation of how their recommendations can be implemented across all of the sites in our MAT – Highly Recommended."
