Schools’ Support for Students and Staff

Schools have a requirement to ensure that students and staff have a “safe and supportive environment”. In the current NESA manual, this now includes “security, with specific reference to… evacuation procedures” (3.62 and 5.62 respectively). Obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 are an additional, separate legislative requirement. To keep up to date, please scroll below.


All schools are operational.
