Risk management

The schools financial procedures provides maintained schools with guidance on a range of financial management processes that are set out as individual sections.

It is the intention of the Local Authority (LA) to take all reasonably practicable steps to eliminate or control the risks to persons, assets and liabilities.

Directors will be responsible for implementing the policy within their own directorates. To ensure that risk management is given fullest consideration at all stages of work, every establishment will have at least one person responsible for Risk Management.

No policy can be successful without the fullest involvement and co-operation of all Employees in ensuring that risk of injury, disease loss, damage and liability are minimised.

The LA’s main objectives, so far as reasonably practicable, are:

  • To maintain a safe and healthy working environment for all Employees by minimising the risk of personal injury or disease
  • To maintain the safety and health of all site users, service recipients and members of the public
  • To minimise the risk of loss to assets, image, or reputation
  • To minimise the risk of disruption to Ealing LA’s services
  • To minimise exposure to third party liabilities

In order to accomplish these objectives, the School will take the necessary action to identify sources of possible loss or damage and control these via a Risk Management Programme.
