Litigation and alleged cases of educational malpractice are on the rise. Headteachers and governors are more aware of legal requirements, but this new book addresses the needs of teachers. The book introduces a framework for safe practice, then details the 'high risk' subjects of Science, IT, Design and Technology, and PE and outdoor activities in separate chapters. The implications for classroom practice of recent legal developments are examined, and three more chapters look at what can be expected in the process of litigation. Sound advice for those wishing to make schools safer, and useful guidance for those having to deal with the aftermath of a safety problem.
