Hot weather- Risk Assessment

Hot weather- Risk Assessment


Monday 18th July and Tuesday 19th July are set to be incredibly hot days- 37+ degrees! We've consulted with our Trust and we've agreed to keep the school open- we are fortunate in that our buildings keep certain areas cooler and we have fans and air conditioning throughout the school. We have made plans for how to get through those two days safely- measures include:


  • Keeping breaks and lunches inside
  • Going to shaded areas for fresh air but not running around
  • Drinking at least two bottles of water
  • Relaxed uniform (Summer uniform, but no ties or long shirts, jumpers, or layers)


37 degrees will be a challenge but we'll take it slowly and carefully- we'll beat the heat!


Please see our Risk Assessment for further details on our measures.
